The 1925 through 1929 Short subject Silent Film Classics with Wurlitzer Pipe Organ  We had fun doing this show back in 2010 and had a great turnout. Hopefully we can do another "Fest" type show in the future

The movies will feature the historic Meyer Theater Wurlitzer Pipe Organ providing all of the music and sound effects necessary to making this silent film classic a true experience, taking the viewer back in time to the 1920's.  

Frank Rippl has been Organist/Choirmaster at all Saints’ Episcopal Church in Appleton since 1971. He is a co-founder of the Appleton Boychoir, and now serves as the Boychoir’s Director Emeritus and organist for it’s annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, and is founder and coordinator of the summer Lunchtime Organ Recital Series. Mr Rippl has been performing silent films for The Packerland Theatre Organ Society for the past five years.

The Packerland Theatre Organ Society is presenting this film as part of its 2010 silent film series.

On May 18th 2010, Tuesday at 7pm The Packerland Theatre Organ Society will present “The Buster Keaton Film Festival ”, at the fully restored movie palace, the Meyer Theater in downtown Green Bay, WI, with its historical Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ..
