Abington shows silent film, 'The Cat and the Canary' with organ music

Penn State Abington's Cultural Arts Series will present the 1927 silent horror film classic, "The Cat and the Canary," at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 15, in Sutherland Auditorium. The movie will be accompanied by eerie organ music played by renowned organist, Wayne C. Zimmerman. Moylan C. Mills, professor emeritus of integrative arts, will guide the audience through the story of the death of eccentric millionaire Cyrus West and his greedy family who descend upon him like "cats around a canary." Twenty years after West's death, his relatives gather for the reading of the will and must spend the night in his haunted mansion. What relative will inherit his fortune? Who will survive the night? The movie features the great silent film star, Laura LaPlante.

Admission is free and the event is open to the public. For more information on Penn State Abington's Cultural Arts Series, visit http://www.abington.psu.edu/cultural-arts online.
