Presents PETER PAN

Silent Classic Movie Features



Saturday, August 15th, the Community Arts Theater Society (CATS), in association with The Broadway Café, will once again sponsor a Silent-movie Under the Stars featuring the incredible BOB  SALISBURY, the internationally known theatre organist.  SALISBURY, will accompany with his famous underscoring for the 1924 classic silent movie, PETER PAN, the first film adaptation of the play by J.
