Silent Movie Night is part of the University’s Homecoming celebrations

REDLANDS, Oct. 10, 2013–The University of Redlands School of Music and the Office of Student Life will host screening of the film College as part of the University of Redlands Homecoming 2013 celebrations at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, 2013 in the Memorial Chapel. The public is encouraged to enjoy the fireworks at Ted Runner stadium after the screening of the film College.

Robert (Bob) Salisbury, one of the greatest silent film accompanists, will play the University of Redlands historic Casavant pipe organ known as “Miss Cassie” during the showing of the film. Salisbury is one of the few organists who specializes in the art of accompanying silent movies.

Salisbury has performed in many well-known theaters throughout Southern California. He has also been heard on TV shows, including the CBS series "Touched by An Angel." His credits as a composer include background scores for Disney’s "Sea in Tokyo."

College is a 1927 comedy-drama silent film directed by James W. Horne and Buster Keaton, and starring Buster Keaton, Anne Cornwall and Harold Goodwin. Keaton plays a brainy student who goes to college and tries to win his sweetheart by becoming an athlete.
