Silent film + live music + grand historic theatre = Speedy adventure!
Kids are drawn to classic silent films because the stories are relatively simple and told through physical comedy. Combine them with live, musical accompaniment in a majestic historic theatre and you have an experience!
Bring the whole family to the Detroit Film Theatre for Speedy, the tale of a scatterbrained New Yorker who finds his true calling when he becomes determined to save the city’s last horse-drawn streetcar. From its joyous visit to Coney Island to its incredible Babe Ruth cameo (yes, the real Babe Ruth!) to its hair-raising stunts on city streets, Speedy is an out-of-control, joyous, rollicking big-city adventure. The musical accompaniment by Boston’s legendary Alloy Orchestra makes this a must for families, and a perfect opportunity for youngsters to discover the unique experience of cinema merged with live performance – and to meet the band after the show.
