People who came last year are calling to say they can’t wait. It is certain to be a sell out. For that reasons we have decided to offer advance ticket sales. Starting today you can buy advance tickets for the showing of WINGS on Thursday, February 26. All seats will be $10.00. They are available at the Balboa box office during operating hours. You’ll have the least wait if you avoid show times. Sorry, passes cannot be accepted for this show because of our contractual agreements.
 And what will $10 get you? 
The doors will open at 7pm. As you enter the auditorium there will be a program of original theater lantern slides and live piano music from Kitten on the Keys’ Suzanne Ramsey.
At 7:30 we’ll show previews of coming attractions for silent films followed by Felix the Cat in ASTRONOMEOWS plus George Melies' A TRIP TO THE MOON accompanied by Nik Phelps of Sprocket Ensemble with his original scores.
Then our vaudeville show brings back by popular demand magician extraordinaire James Hamilton and Ms. Ramsey singing some very appropriate songs. There will be great door prizes including classic film DVDs and videos, passes and a photoplay edition of WINGS (courtesy of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival).

After the intermission our very special guest William Wellman Jr. will introduce his father’s classic adventure romance, WINGS. Set during World War I, it stars Clara Bow, Richard Arlen, Charles “Buddy” Rogers and a very young Gary Cooper. WINGS won “Best Picture” at the very first Academy Awards. Nik Phelps and pianist Larry Dunlap will return with a new musical score written by Phelps for our screening. We will screen a 35mm print of WINGS. Following the showing the audience is invited into the lobby for birthday cake and drinks. Audience members are encouraged to dress in clothing of the 1920s.
This evening is being presented in association with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival.  We know that many people can’t come out during a weeknight and in response to last year’s requests we will have an encore screening of WINGS on Saturday morning, Feb. 28 at 10am. We will only show the feature and it will have an excellent prerecorded musical score. Admission will be only $5.00 for everyone.
