September 12, 2013


Sept. 12--LANESBORO -- Silent movies return to Lanesboro this weekend.

The 2013 silent movies organized by Lanesboro Community Theater will feature fractured fairy tales starring local people performing in "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Cinderella" and "The White Cat of Dovre Mountain."

The movies will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday in Lanesboro's Sylvan Park.

The films were produced by Sandy Webb. "Our motive was to provide an avenue for people to discover the freedom of acting in a silent movie," she said. About 80 local people appear in the movies, she said.

In addition to the movies, there will be live entertainment between films. Bring a lawn chair and blanket for comfort. Refreshments will be available.

DVDs of the movies are available for $10.
