Silent Films Made in Western North Carolina
July 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pmFree
Saluda Train Tales presents a program with film historian Frank Thompson who will offer an overview of a forgotten cinematic legacy. Some 400 movies were produced in North Carolina in the silent era from 1900-1929. Thompson will discuss films made in Western North Carolina, particularly in Asheville and, in one case, Saluda and Tryon. He will show clips from two surviving features. Donations to the Saluda Historic Depot are appreciated.
