ABOUT THOMAS OUTT

Currently, taking computer-related classes @ City College of San Francisco & Project Mgt classes @ San Francisco State University, College of Extended Learning.  I enjoy reading, films, art, and music.  Generally, I enjoy many activities, only regretting that I don’t have enough time to properly devote to them as I would like.
Of particular interest, are films from the Silent Era, much of which I learned about through the annual San Francisco Silent Film Festival, held  in the early part of July, at the Castro Theatre.  Two events related to that endeavour were most significant in 2012.  One was the screening of the 1927 Able Gance film Napoleon.  This was in February/March @ the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California.  The other was a screening of a Pola Negri film, The Spanish Dancer, as part of this year’s film festival line-up.  It was the first time that the Festival had screened anything from her long-neglected body of work.

One resource for seeing Silent Era Films throughout the year, is the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum, 37417 Niles Blvd.  Fremont, California  94536 (www.nilesfilmmuseum.org)–It provides a weekly showing of Silent Era films that are accompanied by a musician, playing a simple upright piano–creating much the same atmosphere that our great-great grandparents would have experienced throughout much of the country 80+ years ago.
