MOVIES: Silent film fest coming to NT


“Children can’t relate to Chaplin or Keaton,” she said. “Harold, he looks like somebody you would know.”

All of the films shown at the festival will feature the live accompaniment of the Wurlitzer organ. The event will kick off with silent film composer Robert Israel playing the organ Friday night.

Though Suzanne Lloyd has put on numerous festivals in her grandfather’s honor and will continue to do so, she never gets tired of introducing Harold Lloyd’s films to a first-time audience.

“When you see people coming out of the theater laughing and happy, it’s a wonderful gift to give to people,” she said. “It’s very heart-felt.”
