COMING UP from Arts @ PEACE: “A Silent Movie Medley”
4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 22, in the Sanctuary! Admission by Donation – Free reception follows!
Silent Movies with Walt Strony presents “A Silent Movie Medley.” Our medley of silent classics includes the once-lost cream-pie melee of “The Battle of the Century.” Lauren and Hardy star in this smash hit from 1927. Plus, “A Trip to the Moon,” the 1902 French fantasy-adventure; and the masterful Buster Keaton comedy, “Sherlock Jr.” from 1924.
Admission is by donation. All donations benefit the PEACE Organ Fund. A free wine-and-cheese reception follows the film.
Internationally renowned theater organist Walt Strony accompanies these extraordinary films. He performs music from the period on his own Walt Strony Signature Series organ. It has four keyboards and the sound of a full orchestra!

God gave us the arts to lift us up!
Arts @ PEACE offers high-quality cultural events to western Nevada County. PEACE Lutheran Church enjoys a central location within the newly created Grass Valley-Nevada City Cultural District. In that context, we eagerly share our many blessings in music, cinema, art and other cultural gifts with our neighbors!
We offer most presentations by donation. Plus, you can enjoy a free reception afterward. That’s because we believe our neighbors need fellowship! People like lingering over wine, cheese and other snacks and beverages.
We welcome donations of any amount! If you feel so moved, please do give as you can. Any gifts will benefit the PEACE Organ Fund. We are raising money to buy a new organ to replace the aging one you hear in our Sanctuary. (Imagine using a 30-year-old computer! That’s basically what we have now.)
