VENTURA : ‘Silent Movie Night’ to Offer Chaplin Film
A popular Charlie Chaplin silent movie from 1914 and a live pianist will highlight the “Silent Movie Night Under the Stars” this evening in the Olivas Adobe courtyard.
The historical courtyard will be transformed into an outdoor movie theater for the event, co-sponsored by KVEN Radio and the city of Ventura Department of Community Services.
