Tower Tidings for the Week of January 21, 2018

Silent Movie w/ Organ: 'Wings'
THIS Saturday, Jan 20 at 1p

A.K. Smiley Public Library’s free WWI film series continues with a screening of the silent classic Wings on Saturday, January 20th at 1pm in our Main Sanctuary. As an added treat, the screening will include Bob Salisbury live on our amazing organ!

Directed by a veteran combat pilot of World War I, Wings tells the story of David Armstrong and Jack Powell as they enlist in the American Air Service, and Mary Preston who joins the war effort as an ambulance driver in France. Renowned for its realistic flying sequences, the film was the first to be awarded with the Academy Award for Outstanding Picture, the only fully silent film to receive that accolade. Wings stars film legend Clara Bow, Buddy Rogers, and Richard Arden.

For more information on future film screenings, please reference the poster at A.K. Smiley Public Library or contact the Heritage Room at (909) 798-7632 or
