Silent Movie Matinee: Lonesome (1928) & A Trip to the Moon/Le Voyage dans la lune (1902) At The Central Public Library On Sunday, May 21st!

“Hungarian-born director Paul Fejos lived for a time in New York City and wanted to convey its modern, fragmented, and fast-paced life in this film. The main characters, Mary (Barbara Kent) and Jim (Glenn Tryon), are single and try to escape the solitude in their lives by going to Coney Island during the 4th of July weekend. They meet, and connect, but a roller-coaster ride turns their love-story into a bitter-sweet game-of-chance. Silent, with 3 sync-sound dialogue scenes.
(1928) 69 Minutes USA”
