Pedals, Pipes & Pizza
Sunday, August 27 @ 3:00 pm
We’re turning back the hands of time at the Palace as we celebrate the marvels of the theatre’s Mighty Wurlitzer Organ.
Come experience a film, just as audience members did in our theatre 89 years ago! Playing on the big screen will be the 1929 Silent Film LIBERTY, starring the lovable comedic pair Laurel and Hardy. Renowned resident organist for Detroit’s fabulous Fox Theatre, Dave Calendine will accompany the film on the theatre’s prized 1924 instrument.
After the short film, Dave will play songs from “Music of the Mouse: The Walt Disney Song-Book,” which features famed tunes from cartoons of the 20s through today’s blockbuster hits such as “Frozen.” The Wurlitzer boasts more than 700 pipes which are designed to create the sounds of a full orchestra including percussion instruments, bells, chimes, whistles and horns. Patrons will have the opportunity to get an up close and personal look at the wonderful and mysterious Mighty Wurlitzer organ and enjoy pizza on the Palace stage.
Tickets for admission and pizza are $16.
