The Sounds of Silents®


Journey back to the silent era with screenings featuring new scores performed live by acclaimed accompanists.

Previous seasons of The Sounds of Silents® featured a very special New England premiere of Fritz Lang's Metropolis in its newly restored glory, with a thrilling performance by the Alloy Orchestra, and brand new compositions by the Berklee Silent Film Orchestra commissioned for the Coolidge for titles such as Battleship Potemkin, Sunrise, Faust, and Our Hospitality.

The Sounds of Silents® is made possible by the generous contributions of Dr. Martin and Becki Norman, Dr. Thomas Gutheil, Susan Stoller, and Elizabeth Driehaus.


Featuring a terrifying live score by Jeff Rapsis!
