The Place Where Silent Movies Sing
Aug 05, 2014
Ben Wu and David Usui
This short documentary profiles Bill Field, who has run the theater since its debut, and includes a lovely behind-the-scenes tour of the organ he plays. "When I get really engrossed in it, the audience is so quiet I feel like I'm playing alone. You don't hear a pin drop—and you know they're with it," Field says. "The organ is then united with the movie."
This Must Be the Place is a documentary series about home, belonging, and loving what you do. Past shorts have featured bodybuilders, the caretaker of an abandoned Detroit factory, a tintype photographer, a quintessential American burger joint, and much more.
