Before there were CGI-heavy films shown in massive theaters with stadium seating and booming surround sound, there were silent motion pictures accompanied by live music. The Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra transport cinephiles to the early 1900s with their program Christmas at the Silent Movies. Described by the Washington Post as “the premier American ragtime ensemble,” the Maryland-based band accompanies holiday-themed silent films with the original orchestral scores. Festive flicks include the 1922 short “The Frozen North” starring Buster Keaton and the first-ever film adaptations of A Christmas Carol and The Night Before Christmas.
