Village Voice "Voice Choice" this Sunday: The RHR Silent Film Summer Spectacular #2

That's right! Our April silent film-concert at Jalopy Theatre was such a blast, excitement is already mounting for the next one, this Sunday, July 3rd, at 8pm. As featured in the "Voice Choices" section of the Village Voice, we're playing music to accompany a Fatty Arbuckle & Buster Keaton classic, "Coney Island" (1917), Harold Lloyd's "A Jazzed Honeymoon" (1919), and Charlie Chaplin's "A Day's Pleasure" (1919). Escape the city heat and retreat into the comfort of Jalopy Theatre with a cool beer and a lot of laughs. This event is also a "Critic's Pick" in this week's Time Out New York! It also got a mention in the New York Times!

All the films feature a summer/vacation theme, and "Coney Island" is especially notable for its shots of the old boardwalk sights and thrill rides in their heyday. Relax and enjoy staying out late on a Sunday while we throw down some hot jazz after the films too. Come check us out in Staten Island's Travis Fourth of July Parade on Monday if you can!
