STG Presents Trader Joe's Silent Movie Mondays - Feel My Pulse at The Paramount Theatre on Monday, June 9, 2014. Featuring Jim Riggs on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ!
The first film in our Significant Silents series is FEEL MY PULSE (1928), directed by Gregory LaCava. It was the first film shown at The Paramount (which was originally named Seattle Theatre) when the doors opened on March 1, 1928. Starring Bebe Daniels and William Powell, this comedy is about a wealthy hypochondriac who inherits a sanatorium, finding love and adventure along the way.
STG will recreate the feeling of The Paramount's opening in 1928 through a vintage costume parade by volunteers from Children's Hospital, a costume contest, red carpet and vintage cars outside the main entrance plus movie posters, photo booth and dancers inside the lobby. Come in your best 1920's attire for "divine at 9th & Pine."
Opening short Steamboat Willie, the first released short of Disney's Mickey Mouse and placed on the National Film Registry in 1998.
Prior to the film Larry Kreisman, Program Director for Historic Seattle, will share the early history of The Paramount Theatre and Seattle's 1928 theaters. CineClub discussion will follow after the film in Lobby Bar.
Running time for feature film is approximately 63 minutes.
Please note: This film is shown on DVD as 35mm not available.
