Is there anything better than seeing a good silent movie in a beautiful period cinema? I've seen some lovely Buster Keaton movies accompanied by a great gypsy-bluegrass band called The Blue Grassy Knowl. We also have a Luna park in Melbourne which was built in 1912 based on ther Coney Island on no doubt. It still has many of the original features including a roller coaster and carousel.

Love that line about being low too. I'm going to casually slip that into the conversation some time and see what response I get!


Blue Grassy Knoll NOT Knowl - sorry!


I love the old movies but haven't really watched the silent ones. It sounds like so much fun I wish I could go. Maybe there is somewhere in Melbourne that shows them so I can. What fun!


This is exciting! Vintage Vivant is teaming up with a local cinema here (the Alamo Draft House) to screen IT with live piano this August - I'm going to link to this article in our inspiration post, if you don't mind :)
