6pm - Wesley Mission, Pitt St - AUSTRALIA'S SILENT FILM FESTIVAL

On Thursday September 22 at 6pm in aid of the annual Wesley Fair fundraiser the Festival is pleased to announce that with the Wesley Mission the greatest silent film will be presented with live theatre organ accompaniment on the mighty Christie theatre organ. The acclaimed David Bailey shall accompany this treasure of cinema.

The Wesley Fair fundraiser this year seeks to raise funds "For young people living in out of home care..... Wesley Take Charge of Your Life was developed in
partnership with The Rotary Club of Sydney to fill a gap that currently exists to assist these young people transition
successfully from living in out of home care to living independently by providing them with the right support, and helping them to develop the skills and confidence they need to make this major change in their life."

Venue: the Wesley Theatre 220 Pitt Street Sydney, across from the Hilton Hotel.

Ben Hur 1925 • 143 minutes USA


Ben Hur is the epic of American silent films

AFI describes it as the "biggest and most dazzling thing anyone had ever seen, with its jaw- dropping special effects, enormous action sequences, death-defying stunts, glorious two-strip Technicolor and a six digit cast of extras. It was the most expensive movie ever made, coming in at just under $4 million…..
The color sequences are nothing short of spectacular never seen two-strip Technicolor produce shades of blue (albeit blue-green) or realistic flesh tones…"


The TCM site proclaims,
"The great decade of the progress of motion picture art reaches its summit! A cast of 125,000!" read the advertising tag-line for MGM's silent epic Ben-Hur (1925).
The final production cost of Ben-Hur was $3.9 million, a fortune in 1925. The film was a sensation with audiences and grossed $9,386,000, but royalties and distribution costs were so high that MGM came up $850,000 short. The prestige the film brought to the new studio, however, left its executives feeling that Ben-Hur was well worth it. More than any other single production, this film laid the foundation for the studio's reputation as the producer of elite entertainment. The Oscar-winning remake of Ben-Hur (1959) would herald the end of MGM's Golden Era, just as this silent version had begun it."
