at The Cornelius Art Center

documentaries, indies, foreign films, classics, and more

on the big screen with 5.1 surround sound






Sat & Sun  March 7, 8   7:00 pm







Acclaimed jazz/ragtime pianist from Charlotte, Ethan Uslan, who has accompanied silent films in the US and Europe will play rip-roaring piano in the theater!




Experience both live music concert, and film.  Our last silent films program in December was a huge hit!


Comedies from Charlie Chaplin, Sydney Chaplin (Charlie’s brother) and Mack Sennett will be screened in this 90-minute program.  The films are from 1915-17, run from 12-25 minutes each,  and have been professionally restored and transferred to HD Blu-Ray video.  They are fascinating historical documents and hilarious  entertainment.


Ethan Uslan performs a wonderful show of original compositions, improvisation, and historic ragtime pieces that interact perfectly with the films.  The program will be introduced by Robert Maier, and Ethan will offer short comments and take questions in short breaks between the films.
