Enjoy a romantic night at the movies the old-fashioned way — with heightened expressions, flickering images and the rich musical scores of the silent film era. The Boise Philharmonic, led by Yorgos Kouritas, will play along with four silent classics for Valentine’s Day. You’ll also hear the Egyptian Theatre’s organ played by composer Ben Model, who is one of the world’s foremost silent film organists. The film lineup includes Buster Keaton’s hilarious comedy “One Week” (1920) and Nell Shipman’s “Light on Lookout Mountain” (1926), which was filmed at Priest Lake.
