Where's Lowell?

Being the movie nerd I am, I am always stung by the fact I have yet to see the 1927 film Wings. It's the bane of my film buff existence that the first movie to win the Best Picture Oscar has escaped my viewing pleasure, with no thanks to my usually reliable Movie Trading Company. It seems my cinematic deprivation may just take me north. The McKinney Performing Arts Center and the North Texas Chapter of the American Theatre of Organ Society will present Wings as the inaugural film in their "Silents on the Square" silent film series. Not only that, organist Clark Wilson will provide a live score as the movie plays. The screening will be 7 p.m. Saturday at the Courtroom Theater, 111 N. Tennessee in McKinney. Tickets are $14. Call 972-547-2650 or visit mckinneyperformingartscenter.org.
Sat., July 29, 7 p.m.
