MUFF x Toronto Silent Film Fest: Chicago + Little Annie Rooney
We loved co-presenting with Toronto Silent Film Festival so much last year, we’re back for another round! And even better, this time we're co-presenting not one, but TWO screenings. Read on for more about the films and a chance to win tickets!

Before Renée and Catherine Zeta, there was the 1927 version of Chicago. It was edited by Anne Bauchens, who worked with Cecil B. DeMille for 40 years. She was one of three people nominated for the first Academy Award for Film Editing when the award was crated in 1934. And she kept on kicking ass by becoming the first woman to win the award in 1940. Yes, yes, we all die for "Cell Block Tango," but we can't recommend seeing the silent version enough. Scroll down for a chance to win tickets! (Contest now closed!)
Little Annie Rooney (1925)
Sun April 23, 2017 - 4:30pm | $15.00 ($10 seniors/students) | Fox Theatre - RSVP
Mary Pickford! Mary Pickford! Mary Pickford! We might be a little excited about this amazing Mary Pickford film, but can you blame us? Not only is she Canadian, but she was one of the most well-known actresses of her time. She also co-wrote and produced this film along with starring in it. Talk about badass! In Little Annie Roonie she plays a street-gang leader and we're not sure if it gets much better than that. Scroll down for a chance to win tickets!
