1hr 45mins // directed by:Herbert Brenon // featuring:Betty Bronson, Anna May Wong

The first feature film adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic play about a group of children who are brought to a magical land where no one ages. Evil pirate Captain Hook, however, seems to be lurking at every turn, but Peter Pan and his Lost Boys are able to keep him at bay.

The Coolidge is proud to present a restored 35mm print of this innovative 1924 film with a live harp score performed by Leslie McMichael, who is travelling the northeast with this wonderful presentation that is sure to enthrall the young-at-heart of all ages. McMichael's score incorporates elements of ragtime, Celtic-infused sea shanties, and poignant recurring themes for many of the main characters.

Tickets: $13 general / $10 children, students, seniors, and members
