Phantom Flyer 1928 poster 2Join fellow flyboys and flygals for a double feature of vintage silent films featuring 1920s biplane action, all accompanied by live music by Jeff Rapsis. In 'The Phantom Flyer' (1928) famous stunt flyer Al Wilson portrays a border patrol aviator who must use his pilot skills to save girlfriend Mary (Lillian Gilmore) from cattle rustlers. And in 'The Sky Rider' (1928), join Champion the Wonder Dog as he flies along with his master Dick to foil the plot of a disinherited nephew to get even with — well, it's complicated! Come see for yourself as we recreate the silent film experience (planes included) that caused people to first fall in love with the movies: the big screen, live music, and an audience to get riled up about it all. And all this in a hanger-like space right alongside Runway 17-35 at the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport.

The screening will feature live music by silent film accompanist Jeff Rapsis, a New England based composer who specializes in creating music for silent film presentations. The screening will allow experiencing silent film the way its makers originally intended: on the big screen, with live music, and with an audience.
