Film Society Outing 2017 - The Musical Museum at Kew
On Sunday 30th July, very kindly organised by Mary Warner, Film Society members were treated to a very interesting and entertaining visit to the Musical Museum.
We had a fascinating tour, including demonstrations with a peep into the intricate workings and history, of some of the amazing 'mechanical' musical instruments in the Museum. From a tiny music box, self-playing pianos, violins and wind up gramophones to the mighty Wurlitzer organ.
The icing on the cake was, rising up from beneath the stage (of course!) , the Wurlitzer organ recital and then its accompaniment to two very funny silent films, Laurel and Hardy in 'Do Detectives Think' and Buster Keaton's 'Sherlock Junior'.
Just a fantastic afternoon - we all left with a smile on our face.
