    1. Richard Barthelmess “Tolerable David” – Silent Movie
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Tolerable David

      The stories that fill us with the deepest sense of meaning are invariably those that figure some universal truth. “TOL’ABLE DAVID” draws openly upon the story of David & Goliath, as we see David for the first time studying a picture of the young shepherd confronting the menacing giant. This film draws lovingly on the experience of growing up in a pastoral time of America. It’s a classic!

    1. King of Kings – Silent Movie
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      King of Kings

      “One of the most difficult themes, the story Christ’s passion and death, is transferred to the screen with a solemnity and a convincing impressiveness that surpasses “The Ten Commandments” or any other picture of its type ever made.”    –Betty Colfax, Evening Graphic, 1927

      The above quote from a review of DeMille’s “The KING Of KINGS” could still be used today in expounding the merits of this extraordinary film. It held a special place in the directors heart and was the one film he would never remake.

      What radiates from DeMille’s film is the Savior’s love for mankind. In one of the most touching moments ever captured on film, a little girl carrying a doll with a broken leg seeks Jesus for help. His apostles gently try to usher her away until the Savior rebukes them and invites the girl to come to him.

      She holds up her precious doll, and Jesus, with a twinkle in his eyes, ponders a solution. He scratches his forehead quizzically, then, using his carpentry skills, breaks a twig off a nearby tree branch and uses it to repair the doll’s leg.

      The look of joy on that little girl’s face as her doll is restored to completeness conveys Christ’s love for little children better than any words. And that is just one of many precious touches in the film.

      The power of the crucifixion scene is like seeing a Dore print come to life. No film has ever captured this pivotal event of history as well as DeMille’s “The King of Kings”.

      Another brilliant moment in the film has a Roman soldier tearing the mother of the unrepentant thief away from the base of her son’s cross. She staggers blindly to the side of Mary, the mother of Christ, looks up at Christ on the cross, then into the face of Mary–then turns and points, crying out, “That’s my son up there”. Mary embraces the sobbing mother as she too looks upward at her son.

      There is a majesty to watching the life of Christ in powerful images without voice, especially when accompanied by an inspired score, and Blaine Gale will provide that accompaniment with our presentation.

      We hope that you will join with us for this very special Easter presentation.
