Earlier last week I talked to Mike from Hilotrons to talk about their upcoming show at The Screening Room in Kingston on October 29th. With 2014 marking the centennial anniversary of the First World War, the band has announced a short run of Canadian dates presented with The Lost Dominion Screening Collective. The 1928 Canadian silent film Carry On, Sergeant! will be screened with HILOTRONS performing classic film themes by Ennio Morricone, live to the film. This cinematic event will take place in some of Canada’s oldest heritage cinemas and theatres, spread across nine dates and including stops at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema (Toronto), The Regent Theatre (Picton), The Gayety Theatre (Collingwood), and Bytowne Cinema (Ottawa).
In an effort to commemorate the 100yr anniversary of WW I, and spread the word about our silent era history, the performances will be free for all veterans.
