Not-So-Silent-Cinema's 'Mark Of Zorro'

You won't be able to hear a pin drop during the screening of the 1920 Douglas Fairbanks-starring The Mark of Zorro at The Rotunda in West Philadelphia tonight. And you're not likely to be able to sit still, either.

You won't be able to hear a pin drop during the screening of the 1920 Douglas Fairbanks-starring The Mark of Zorro at The Rotunda in West Philadelphia tonight. And you're not likely to be able to sit still, either.

That's because the swashbuckling action flick depecting the daring adventures of masked Mexican Robin Hood Don Diego Vega - a.k.a. Zorro - will be accompanied by a zesty pan Latin musical score written by Brendan Cooney of the West Philadelphia Orchestra. It will be performed live by a musical consortium consisting of members of said brass band, plus players from tango group Oscuro Quintet and rock band TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb.

Tickets are $10 for tonight's Not-So-Silent-Cinema screening and performance, which begins at 8. The movie and a live performance of Cooney's score will be paired togther one more time, at the Bryn Mawr Film Institute on May 22. More info about both shows here. There's a clip below of the trailer for the film, and of a rehearsal for tonight's big show.
