The Old Town Music Hall
Posted by:  Sandee Curry

It is completely worth the drive past the smokestacks and industrial wasteland and into charming El Segundo for this experience. Since 1968, this has been the place in Southern California to see silent movies with the accompaniment of The Mighty Wurlitzer. And when I say “Mighty,” I’m not at all exaggerating; the organ alone is worth the trip. It’s an enormous pipe organ with each piece painted in fluorescent colors that glow in the dark! As the organist plays, the pieces move, creating a unique and surreal visual that accompanies the music filling the theater. Prepare for a good old-fashioned night at the movies starting with a sing-along complete with lyrics and that happy bouncing ball. That’s followed by a few short features, such as Laurel and Hardy, then a great silent film or classic musical featuring the likes of Fred Astaire or some other fine old hoofer. The theater has also recently been a venue for bluegrass, ragtime, Dixieland, and other “vintage” music acts. If you go during the arctic Southern California winter, be sure and warm up with a cup of hot cider.
