East Lynne Theater Company presents 'Tillie's Punctured Romance'

First Presbyterian Church

500 Hughes St
Cape May, NJ 08204

Tillie's Nightmare, written by A. Baldwin Sloane, and starring Marie Dressler, was such a hit on Broadway, that it was adapted for a Keystone Film Company production, complete with the Keystone Cops. Dressler, who plays a country girl, meets Charlie Chaplin, a stranger from the city. When Chaplin, and his girlfriend, played by Mabel Normand, discover she is an heiress, they form a plot on how to separate Tillie from her money. Directed by Mack Sennett, it was the first feature-length movie ever made (1914), and the last one Charlie Chaplin made that he neither wrote nor directed.    

See the film as silents are meant to be heard – with live music! 

Accompanying the film is organist Wayne Zimmerman, making this his 7th year with ELTC.  Wayne has played in a variety of venues from coast-to-coast and in Hawaii, regaling audiences with his silent-film accompaniment and concerts.      

Co-sponsored with The Cape May Film Society
