The “Live in the House Concert Series” at the Pemberville Opera House continues Jan. 4 with a silent movie.
“The Squaw Man” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. and feature Lynn Long on piano.
The film, one of the first feature-length movies to be made in southern California, marked the start of Cecil B. DeMille’s career. He twice remade the film.
Its stars journey to America on the high seas and travel out west where they meet Native Americans. A shoot-out brings the film to a surprising and elaborately plotted resolution.
Long, of Grand Rapids, is a graduate of Bowling Green State University and has maintained a private piano studio in her home where she teaches about 30 students.
She is one of the two founding members of the Fayette Fine Arts Council and served on its executive committee.
She has been a member of the Ohio Music Teachers Association for many years and currently serves as secretary of the Wood-Ottawa chapter.
The film will also be shown Jan. 5 at 2 p.m. at the opera house of the Grand Rapids Town Hall.
Tickets are available at Beeker’s General Store or Riverbank Antiques in Pemberville, or Washers in Grand Rapids.
