I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Silent Sundays Series: Show People (1928)

Silent Sundays with live Wurlitzer organ accompaniment are back at the Mission Playhouse this Fall featuring returning silent favorites Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and Harold Lloyd, along with a new face to the Playhouse screen, Marion Davies!

Purchase your subscription by November 12th and see the series for the special price of $35! Each subscription comes with an 11” x 17” Silent Sundays series poster which will be available for pick up on November 17th.

The series begins November 17th at 2:30pm with 1928’s ‘Show People’ starring Marion Davies and William Haines. Directed by the five time Oscar nominated and honorary Academy award winning director King Vidor, Davies plays Peggy Pepper, a Southern belle who leaves Georgia with her father to travel West to Hollywood with dreams of becoming a movie star.

Davies’ comedic talent shines in ‘Show People.’ The film “boasts fast-paced humor, a lively leading man in the form of William Haines, a gentle ribbing of Hollywood, and more star cameos than you can shake a stick at” (moviessilently.com). New York Times film critic Mordaunt Hall wrote “So clever is the comedy in Show People…that it would not be at all surprising to hear that many in the audiences had sat through it twice.”

Accompanying the film on the Playhouse’s 1924 Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ is American Theatre Organ Society’s Organist of the Year (2012) Mark Herman.

Silent Sundays continue with Buster Keaton’s ‘Sherlock, Jr.’ (1924) & ‘Cops’ (1922 short) on January 19th, ‘The Freshman’ (1925) starring Harold Lloyd on March 22nd, and Charlie Chaplin’s ‘The Gold Rush’ (1925) on May 31st.

Ticket prices start at $10 ($12 day of show, group tickets 10+ $8.50). Purchase a subscription and see all the films for the discounted price of $35.
