The Silent Film

I was having a good time getting to know my new school, Hanshew, that I first went to on the ninth when I heard I was going to another symphony, for the fifth time. I got even more excited, and I had thought I had had enough excitement from my first week of school. Apparently, I was wrong about that.

I was able to go to the symphony, and I went with the people from Oliver cottage. Here are some quotes from them about what they thought about the silent film:

Alvin who escorted us to the symphony said, “Going to the Silent Film Double Feature brought back early child memories of watching Charlie Chaplin silent film movies and the joy that I had watching them, but it was very exciting to hear the symphony play alongside the film, which I’ve never experienced before.”

My peer said, “I have never seen a silent film and I found the film to be quite a treat for me because I have found that listening to the different music that they played to be interesting and also that the symphony was able to follow along with the show.”


The students holding their tickets.

Alvin and my peer just left the room, and I am laughing, because it was fun watching how they were talking with each other.

Anyway, the silent film was funny. I liked how it was funny and had lots of action in it. Personally, I think that Steamboat Bill JR. is the best.


The crowd gathers before the show.

I liked how the symphony played right along with the movie, though how they did that without being able to see it, I have no idea. Once, I even forgot the symphony was playing the music until the movie stopped. It fit along so well, I had thought that it was an actual part of the movie. Thank you yet again ASO for the tickets. I really enjoyed myself, which is easy to do considering how funny the movies were. I will keep the tickets in my coat pocket so whenever I put it on, I remember that awesome night when I went to my fifth symphony and my first silent film.

From the happy people (not to mention lucky as well),
THANK YOU!!!

F.Y.I, MY ELBOW IS SCRAPED FROM FALLING ON THE GROUND AT HANSHEW, SO IF ANYONE IS WONDERING, IT DOESN’T HAVE TO DO WITH THE SYMPHONY (Ha Ha Ha)!
