The Paper Mouse Atelier
Roaring 20's Night
Sunday, May 19, 2019
In celebration of the Newton Festival of the Arts in May 2019, we collaborated with the West Newton Cinema to throw a 1920’s party and silent film soiree!
At The Paper Mouse Atelier we hosted a Roaring 20’s party, complete with big band music, refreshments and a photo booth. Guests crafted their own fascinators, masquerade masks and moustaches; typed notes on our typewriter; and tested their chops with some 1920s trivia.
Afterward, the West Newton Cinema played a series of classic silent films by Charlie Chaplin ("The Cure" and "The Immigrant") and Buster Keaton ("Sherlock, Jr."), accompanied by world-class Canadian pianist Bruce Vogt, an enthusiastic champion of the great films of the silent era who has improvised accompaniments for and lectured on films by Chaplin, Keaton, Lloyd, Griffith, Murnau and others.
