BDAC presenting Silent Film Music Festival

BOUNTIFUL—The Bountiful Davis Arts Center will present its second annual Silent Film Musical Festival on Saturday. It runs from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the BDAC, 90 N. Main St. in Bountiful. When silent films debuted nearly 100 years ago, theaters would hire musicians to play alongside them. Bountiful Davis Art Center will recreate this experience all day Saturday. Live pianists on two Steinway grand pianos will accompany a new movie every 45 minutes throughout the day. Over 350 young pianists from 18 piano teachers will perform the score music.  Come and enjoy seven different movies featuring Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.   Traditional cinema food and drink will be sold.
