Date Night Bring your Honey ! "Wings" Silent Movie with organ accompanist

Wings is a 1927 silent film about World War I fighter pilots that won the first Academy Award for Best Picture in 1929. Wings stars Clara Bow, Charles "Buddy" Rogers, and Richard Arlen. Gary Cooper appears in a role which helped launch his career in Hollywood and also marked the beginning of his affair with Clara Bow. The film, completed with a budget of $2 million. Primary scout aircraft flown in the film were Thomas-Morse MB3s and Curtiss PW-8s.

Two young men, one rich, one middle class, who are in love with the same woman, become fighter pilots in World War I. Daring danger and destruction. Scouring the skies for enemy planes. Soaring to the clouds in a flimsy machine. And yet, like a charm, her love kept this "Shooting Star." Carried him through the terrific dangers. Brought him back to earth. Spirited, striving, spectacular. A story of the American war "Aces" in France.

Film will be shown at the beautifully restored Loews Landmark Theatre and will be accompanied by a Bernie Anderson live at the organ.

Dress up in your bombers and silk scarves for this one!

Movie tickets are $9 on line or at the door- a bargain, so treat your honey to great meal.

    Fabulously crafted film with unbelievable flying sequences! Bernie, the organist deserves special kudos for playing 2 1/2 hours without repose. William Wellman Jr was an extra special treat providing fascinating behind the scenes insight.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
