Don't miss our annual Silent Movie scary horror night on Friday October 27th @ 7:30pm featuring Jay Warren, who will lead with our Casavant 3062 pipe organ to the 1927 film, featuring Joan Crawford in The Unknown. The Lon Chaney film is a real spine-tingler, especially when combined with the church in candlelight. Drinks will be served and admission tickets will be available through our ticket site as soon as possible.
The Unknown is a 1927 American silent horror film directed by Tod Browning, and starring Lon Chaney as carnival knife thrower "Alonzo the Armless" and Joan Crawford as his beloved carnival girl Nanon. Originally titled Alonzo the Armless, filming took place from February 7 to March 18, 1927 on a $217,000 budget.
The film carried the tagline: "A superb mystery thriller, unusual and startling even for a Chaney film. Lon as "The Unknown" eats, drinks, shoots a rifle and dresses with his feet. Don't miss this startling spectacle!"
