Keene Halloween hoopla with silent film, live music

Alloy Orchestra will accompany a screening of The Black Pirate with original compositions Friday.

The Black Pirate (1926) is one of the first feature-length silent films shot in color. It stars Douglas Fairbanks, who Johnny Depp used as inspiration as Capt. Jack Sparrow.

The film contains two of Fairbanks’ most memorable scenes: sliding down the sail of a ship on the point of a knife, and the totally surreal attack of an underwater army.

The show will be Friday at 7:30 p.m. in the main theater of Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College. Before the show at 4 p.m., Alloy Orchestra will give a workshop on improvisation to film. There will be a photo booth and costume contest, too.

Tickets are $18 to $25 and available by calling 358-2168 or visiting keene.edu/arts/redfern.
