Lance Luce - San Gabriel, California
On May 1, 2016 I had a chance to play a
concert / silent movie in this awesome theatre!
The Wurlitzer pipe organ is outstanding and
thanks to the Los Angeles Theatre Organ
Society and the city of San Gabriel, they are
hosting a series of silent movie events at the
Mission Playhouse. I had never played a
Chinese silent movie before, and it turned out to
be a lot of fun!
As you can see, the theatre is beautiful. The
organ sound is just as gorgeous in this space!
February 5, 2017 I had a chance to
play at the Mission Playhouse in
San Gabriel, California again.
This time it was for a Laurel and
Hardy festival. We showed 3 short
Laurel and Hardy silents from 1928
- 1929. There was a larger crowd
this time, about 250 people. The
organ is very good, and sounds
terrific in that theater. Thanks to
Angie, Mark, Donn and all the folks
at the Los Angeles chapter of the
ATOS, as well as the management
and staff of the Mission Playhouse.
