Almost immediately after they first premiered in 1894, silent movies became America's favorite form of entertainment, quickly replacing its former favorite, silent radio. Savor silent entertainment and its not-so-silent original musical accompaniment with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one ticket for mezzanine or orchestra seating to the Mark of Zorro (up to a $39 value) at the Long Center's Michael & Susan Dell Hall on January 30 at 4 p.m. Patrons can begin redeeming their Groupons for tickets at the box office as early as 10 a.m. on January 27 for early-bird seat choices. Student tickets may be less expensive directly from the Long Center; be sure to check the price list.

Film buffs and music aficionados alike will have their sensory organs tickled by Rick Benjamin's Paragon Ragtime Orchestra as it performs the original score to the silent film The Mark of Zorro as it is screened. The Spanish-flavored soundtrack for The Mark of Zorro is timed to the athletic and often humorous action of Douglas Fairbanks, who brings the swashbuckling Señor Zorro to life as he fights against a corrupt administration's banning of the letter "Z" in Old Spanish California. Using a jealously guarded time portal, Maestro Rick Benjamin has built a career uncovering and performing American music from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, having reunited the films of Chaplin, Keaton, and Harold Lloyd with their original scores. A grand concert hall capable of holding 2,400 patrons, the Michael & Susan Dell Hall is designed for quality sound from both acoustic and amplified performances.
