Indy Parks and Recreation's Garfield Park Arts Center will present a unique evening of entertainment during the July Vintage Movie Night event. Enjoy "base ball" themed vintage films, accompanied by a live score. Before the films, watch the Vintage Base Ball Association play and listen to a brief account of history by players from the Indianapolis Hoosiers Vintage Base Ball team.

Starting out the night, "One Run Elmer" (1935) stars Buster Keaton as a gas station owner whose business, girlfriend and pride are threatened when a rival gas station opens across the street. The rivalry can only be decided by a thrilling baseball game in the end.

Next, experience a silent vintage film at its finest - with a live musical score! "The Three Ages" (1923), was Keaton's first independently produced feature film. Keaton explores love and romance through three historical ages: the Stone Age, the Roman Age, and the Modern Age. The score will be written and performed by Indianapolis band, Tonos Triad.

Vintage Move Nights is an ongoing monthly film series brought to you by the Garfield Park Arts Center and presented by Eric Grayson, vintage film historian, and his associates. There is a suggested donation of $2 for each event.
