The Echo Park Film Center kicks off its Filmmobile Summer Screening Series on Friday with a silent film tribute to Mack Sennett in honor of the 100th anniversary of Keystone Studios. The Studios, which was located where the Thriftee Storage is now on Glendale Boulevard and in what was then called Edendale, was the first silent film studio in Los Angeles. The Filmmobile will project a total of six silent films throughout the summer, so what better way to kick it off than at the actual location?
Tomorrow nights “A Solute to Sennett” includes special guest Brent E. Walker, author of Mack Sennett’s Fun Factory, and features The Hollywood Kid, Mabel’s Dramatic Career and Edendale Follies. The screening starts at 8:00 pm at 1710 Glendale Boulevard (across the street from the Jack in the Box). Food, free, and open to all!
