Friends of the Boyd Host A Fundraiser
PHILADELPHIA, PA — The following email was sent by Friends of the Boyd Chairman, Howard Haas:
We are really eager for you to join us at our film fundraiser of The Show-Off, 8 PM, Friday March 21, at International House, 3701 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia. $15 includes live music & reception afterwards at International House with White Dog Cafe food, Yards Brewing Co. beer, and 1920’s music from radio D.J. Dan Buskirk.
The Show-Off is a silent 1926 romantic comedy starring Louise Brooks, and was filmed in Philadelphia with scenes of Swann Fountain, City Hall, and old Pennsylvania RR Broad Street Station. Movie critic Carrie Rickey will introduce the film. Hope to see you there. Please bring your friends!
For tickets, call Upstages at 215-569-9700 or buy at Prince or Plays & Players when Upstages open at those theaters, or with cash or credit card at International House from 2 hours before the film. Friends of the Boyd is raising funds for business and architectural studies to restore the Sameric.

Thanks to Howard for the update.
