A Whole New World
We're all trying to get a mega-theatre experience at home these days. Big screens and surround sound with lots of bass so the couch vibrates when you turn up the speakers. But how about getting that "knock-you-out-of-your-seat" thrill watching a silent film? Eighty years ago, the only sound you heard during a movie was the click of the film through the gate and your date asking for popcorn. Now, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra reinvents the silent film experience at the Meyerson, providing a live soundtrack for a viewing of The Lost Worlda creature classic created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (of Sherlock fame) with dinosaurs, damsels, professors and danger on an uncharted island. Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. watch this black and white 1925 classic on a huge screen, surrounded by the Dallas' best in live audio. Call 214-692-0203 or visit dallassymphony.com.
Fri., Oct. 27, 8 p.m.; Sat., Oct. 28, 8 p.m.
