Find out on two Mondays this season as the “Summer Classics” series at the Strand in Schroon Lake presents silent comedy shorts starring the legendary Buster Keaton and TCM’s choice for the greatest Hollywood movie ever!
“Silence is of the gods; only monkeys chatter.”
— Buster Keaton
SCHROON LAKE, NY — The only way to truly tell if a new work of art is destined to be a classic is through the test of time. On two Mondays this summer, filmgoers at the Strand Theater in Schroon Lake, New York—itself a classic Art Deco movie house—will be treated to movies that have not only stood the test of time but aced it:
Tickets to each evening’s program are $10 and will be available at the door (cash only, please). The historic Strand Theater is located at 1102 Main Street (U.S. Route 9), Schroon Lake, NY; box office: 518-532-9077. To learn more, please contact Fred Balzac, Program Director of the “Summer Classics @ the Strand” series, at 518-588-7272 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
And speaking of stunning digital viewing, this is the fourth consecutive summer that the Strand is partnering on special programming with the Adirondack Film Society (AFS)—the people who bring you the annual Lake Placid Film Festival and the monthly (September through May) AFS Screening Series at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts. It was a collaboration between the two organizations resulting in a New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) Regional Economic Development Council (REDC) grant award—along with the tremendous generosity of the Schroon Lake-area community—that helped Larry and Liz McNamara, the theater’s owner-operators, purchase and install digital film-projection equipment, enabling the Strand to continue as a first-run movie house.
