Columbia River Theatre Organ Society and the Hollywood Theatre present "America's Sweetheart" Mary Pickfordin in Pollyanna (1920, silent) June 24, 2017 at 2pm. Live organ accompaniment.
Pollyanna is a melodrama/comedy silent film; Pickford's first motion picture for United Artists. It became a major success and would be regarded as one of her most defining pictures. The film grossed $1.1 million (approximately $13,151,000 today)
When Pollyanna is orphaned, she is sent to live with her crotchety Aunt Polly. Pollyanna discovers that many of the people in her aunt's New England home town are as ill-tempered as her aunt. But Pollyanna's incurable optimism - exemplified by her "glad game," in which she looks for the bright side of every situation - brings a change to the staid old community.
Live organ accompaniment provided by Dean Lemire on the Beverly Ruth Nelson Memorial Organ.
Tickets are $12.00 at the door of the Hollywood Theatre.
