When: Sunday, August 29, 2010 2:15 PM
Where: The Earl Smith Strand Theatre

This should be a lot of fun-- a good silent movie (Wings) with live organ accompaniment, a live sing-a-long, and the local color guard at Marietta's Strand theater.
Wings is first feature film to win an Academy Award for Best Picture-- it is a 1927 silent classic that tells the story of two men (Buddy Rogers and Richard Arlen) in love with the same woman (Clara Bow). After the U.S. enters World War I, both join the Air Corps to fight in France and their rivalry grows into a wary friendship once they become fellow fighter pilots. Will their love for Clara tear apart their friendship?
*Organ accompaniment performed by Ron Carter on The Strand’s new Mighty Allen Theater Organ.
*The Paulding County High School ROTC Color Guard will present the colors immediately preceding the film.
*Live organ pops variety show and sing-along at 2:30 PM.
*The Marietta History Museum will be on site with information about its new Aviation Wing.
Movie begins at 3:00PM!
