They may have not been popular for about a hundred years, but they are certainly not forgotten. Silent movies are slowly coming back, at least since The Artist won an Oscar in 2012, and you can experience their revival (and stuff your tummies) at the Silent Movie Night: An Evening of Racing and Lizzies at the Ironstone Vineyards. All silent movies are accompanied by Dave Moreno on the famous Alhambra Theatre Pipe Organ, just like the good ol’ times. Admission includes a buffet dinner before the movie starts and popcorn. Head over to the Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys on Saturday, Feb. 15. The movie starts at 6 p.m. The price is $22.50.
