Donald MacKenzie accompanies Harold Lloyd’s 1923 classic silent comedy ‘Safety Last’. We are delighted to present Internationally acclaimed silent film accompanist and theatre organist Donald MacKenzie accompanying the 1923 silent classic Safety Last, starring Harold Lloyd. Donald is one of the world’s top theatre organists, famous for his residency at London’s premiere cinema, the Odeon Leicester Square, with its own Compton organ. Tonight he turns the Guildhall’s wonderful and huge theatre organ into a full sized orchestra to accompany this fabulous silent masterpiece of comedy. This event harkens back to the days of silent cinema, which of course was anything but ‘silent’, and demonstrates the incredible experience of watching a film with live music accompaniment on a large theatre organ.
