The (Not So) Silent Movie

June 2 at 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Presenting Charlie Chaplin’s Easy Street and The Adventurer

Featuring original compositions performed live by theatre organist by Douglas Rust

In partnership with Coca-Cola, Payne Company, VERB Architecture, Corner Market, Lamar County with support from Landry, Lewis, and Germany Architects, P.A.

This wonderful afternoon of classical movies is a summer treat for the entire family and children of all ages. The 778-pipe Robert Morton organ accompanies these classic Chaplin films with Dr. Douglas Rust at the keyboard. A regular featured performer at the annual Plaza Classic Film Festival in Texas, he has been accompanying silent films at Southern Miss for nearly a decade. Don’t miss this fabulous trip back in time at the historic Saenger Theater and meet-and-greet Artie and enjoy the incredible adventures of the Pocket Museum before and after the show.

Currently serving as organist at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Hattiesburg, Dr. Rust has played the organ for a variety of churches over the years. He earned his Ph.D in Music Theory at Yale University, and has been teaching music theory at the USM School of Music since 2007.
