SILENT REVUE

Toronto’s celebrated ongoing exploration of Silent Cinema – the only year-round dedicated selection of silent films in a theatrical venue. All screenings feature live musicians and are set in the fabulous silent-era Revue Cinema!

Curated by Media Archivist Alicia Fletcher. A talented cohort of musicians supported these screenings (Jeff Rapsis, Malkah Lerner, Jordan Klapman, Tania Gill, and William O’Meara). Silent Revue is sponsored by Hollywood Suite

Welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth! This season, Silent Revue transports you to a circus ring, where tortured clowns, tragic trapeze artists, and menacing circus freaks entertain (and terrify).
