     Orange residents will have one more chance to see the outstandingly popular 1927 silent
movie about the city.
     Orange and District Historical Society will screen the movie for the fifth time at 7pm on
Sunday, October 14 at the Odeon Cinemas in William Street.
     Society president Phil Stevenson said the further screening was due to popular demand.
“We have been overwhelmed with requests from people to show the movie again,” he
     “Some people missed the previous screenings while others enjoyed it so much they want
to see it again.”
     People wanting to see the movie should contact Phil Stevenson on 0402 412 188 or Julie
Sykes on 6362-1682, and pick up their tickets before the screening on Wednesday between
10am and 4pm at Heritage Cottage, 148 March Street, if possible. Those who cannot get to
the cottage may pick up their tickets at the cinema on the night. Tickets cost $15 per person
and include a souvenir program and tea, coffee and biscuits after the screening.
     Phil Stevenson will give a brief talk about the movie before the movie and Ross Maroney
will answer questions afterwards.
