If you are a fan of silent movies or have never seen one, the opportunity is coming courtesy of the DeMoulin Museum in Greenville.
Three Sundays in September, the museum will be showing silent films. Prior to each movie, a guest host will share stories about the featured actors.
Museum Curator John Goldsmith said the Silent Sundays series is sponsored by HSHS Holy Family Hospital. He’s excited to be able to share silent movies, which is something many people have not seen in a long time or maybe ever. Goldsmith said silent movies bring to mind slapstick humor, which ties in nicely with the lodge initiation devices the museum is known for.
Doors open at 3:30 PM and movies start at 4. There will be complimentary popcorn and drinks.
