Silver Screen Celebration
Just when you think the summer will be ending, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival will be hosting the Silver Screen Celebration on Sunday August 25, 2013. The fundraiser will start off with a classic silent film screening of Douglas Fairbank’s swashbuckling adventure “The Mark of Zorro” at the Historic Arlington Theatre. The screening is in collaboration with the Santa Barbara Theatre Organ Society and features a live accompaniment by Adam Aceto on the theatre’s Wonder Morton pipe organ, which is one of only five in existence. Tickets for the family friendly screening are $5 and all attendees are encouraged to come in costume.
Following the screening will be a 21 and over masquerade at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. Attendees will be treated to live entertainment, food provided by some of Santa Barbara’s finest restaurants and caterers, wine, beer, and cocktails. As the sun sets, the DJ will take the stage and guests can dance the night away. Tickets for the film and masquerade are $85 and include all food, wine, beer and cocktails.
Proceeds from the event benefits Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s free children’s education and community outreach programs that serve over 16,000 residents each year. Programs include Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies, AppleBox Family Films, 10-10-10 Student Screenwriting & Filmmaking Competitions, 3rd Weekend, and SBIFF College Internships.
