Mel Brooks' Silent Movie
Saturday, Apr. 01, 2017
Mel Brooks' Silent Movie
Thoughout the 1970s and 1980s, Mel Brooks successfully spoofed entire genres of film - westerns with Blazing Saddles, horror movies with Young Frankenstein, and sci-fi with Spaceballs. On April Fool's Day, join us at the Historic Ironwood Theatre as we present Silent Movie, an affectionate parody of the slapstick films of the silent film era.
Silent Movie tells the story of a has-been comedy director as he struggles to recruit a group of big Hollywood stars to take part in his comeback project, a modern-day silent movie. Mel Brooks' cameo-filled comedy pays loving tribute to the early days of screen comedy through a succession of silent slapstick sequences.
The film will be masterfully accompanied on the Ironwood Theatre's Barton organ by our good friend Andrew Rogers, staff organist at Ann Arbor's Michigan Theatre.
If you are an afficianado of silent films, you owe it to yourself to experience Brook's tribute to Hollywood's early stars like Chaplin, Lloyd, and Keaton. And if you've never experienced an organ-accompanied silent movie, the evening will offer a wonderful opportunity to be introduced to the genre.
NEWS FLASH! Get two sets of giggles for the price of one. In addition to the Brooks movie, Andrew will also accompany a Harold Lloyd silent short High & Dizzy in which Lloyd plays a doctor sidetracked from curing his sleepwalking patients when he samples a few bottles too many of his friend's moonshine.
Don't be an April Fool - get on the phone, call your friends, and tell them this is one theatre event not to be missed!

Michael Londra's Celtic Fire: One of Ireland’s leading tenors brings you an evening of songs, stories, tunes and dance, from the heart of the Emerald Isle. From a tiny spark, Michael Londra’s Celtic Fire now travels the world in many forms. With 100% live music, dance and song, the show generates an electric atmosphere that sweeps audiences away to Ireland, its culture, its land, its pubs, its music and its soul.
Wondering what a Michael Londra show is like? Then check out some edited highlights from a recent Michael Londra & Celtic Fire show here
World champion dancers from the casts of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance take the stage with brilliant flashes of speed, youth and exuberance. Irish dance has enjoyed a spectacular revival in recent years with shows like Riverdance; however, Celtic Fire doesn’t rehash the art form, but strips it to its bare essentials. Irish music and dance has learned to mix with other cultures to create new and innovative dances but at its core, this is what Ireland is all about. It is the real thing!
The music of Celtic Fire show is traditional at its core, with all of Ireland’s national instruments, the fiddle driving frenetic reels, our great drum, the bodhran beating out the driving rhythms of the band, the plaintive uilleann pipes calling back to days of yore with beautiful and haunting slow airs.
The heart of this show belongs to celebrated tenor Michael Londra who has won fans in every corner of the globe, as the lead voice of Riverdance on Broadway, as a concert singer who has performed in 40 countries and as the star of his Emmy® nominated PBS special. His humor and easy connection with the audiences are what make the evening special, not to mention his stunning voice, with a performance of Danny Boy that will leave you speechless.
This presentation is supported by the Arts Midwest Touring Fund, a program of Arts Midwest that is funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, with additional contributions from the Michigan Council for the Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Crane Group.
