Like memorable pro-wrestling matches, unforgettable films are marked by controversial characters that tackle tough topics or men. Watch the drama unfold with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two tickets to “A Night at the Movies: Silent Film with the Lied Organ” on Sunday, September 18, at 7 p.m. at Abendmusik: Lincoln (up to a $24 value). Admission is regularly $12 per adult, $10 for seniors, and $5 for students.
Since 1972, Abendmusik: Lincoln has paired world-class music and performing arts in a series of live events. Inside the picturesque First-Plymouth Congregational Church sanctuary, the 1920 Douglas Fairbanks swashbuckling classic The Mark of Zorro will unspool as organist Tom Trenney improvises a melodic accompaniment on the lied organ, a massive, 6,000-pipe instrument sometimes used to summon children in neighboring states for dinner. Eyes feast on the unraveling drama as the effete Don Diego transforms into the dashing hero Zorro to champion laborers mistreated by wealthy landowners, all the while courting the enchanting Lolita Pulido using only a series of romantically written title cards. As the film builds to a climax, Trenney will unleash plot-enhancing chords to express characters’ emotions, emphasize tension, and distract from incongruous sci-fi battles.
