This epic World War I-era silent film was the first Academy Award-winning Best Picture in 1929. Boston organist Peter Krasinski, who specializes in the art of live improvised silent film accompaniment worldwide, will put the music to the film. As a bonus, more than a dozen rare World War I artifacts will be on display. They were discovered just this year in a forgotten suitcase by Steve Etzel as he was searching through the attic of his childhood home in Farmington, Maine. The suitcase had belonged to his grandfather.

General admission.

$28 (includes all facility fees).
