More Information

The Mark of Zorro (Douglas Fairbanks, 1920) – The silent original – Hollywood’s very first Action-Adventure movie! Douglas Fairbanks thrills audiences with swordplay, romance, and just a bit of comedy. Bringing the film to life with authentic movie accompaniment is Rick Benjamin’s Paragon Ragtime Orchestra in collaboration with Resident Theater Organist, David Peckham on the Clemens Center’s Marr & Colton Theatre Organ! The Mark of Zorro is a “tinted black and white” film. It is mainly black and white, but there are some scenes that are tinted into blue to represent night, orange during the romantic scenes, and so on. Show Length: 2 hours with a brief intermission. There is also a pre-film Overture and an Exit March following the finale of the film, all part of the authentic ’20s Movie Palace presentational style!

Located in Mark Twain Country just south of the Finger Lakes, the Clemens Center is the region's premier performing arts center with two spectacular performance spaces. Mandeville Hall is a flexible, black box venue suitable for intimate performances, corporate events, and parties. The majestic Powers Theater is an architectural treasure that has been restored to its vaudevillian-era grandeur. Magnificent murals, gold-leaf details, and reconstructed opera boxes adorn the theater just as they did when it opened in 1925. The 1,618-seat venue has been called the most beautiful theatre between New York City and Buffalo—it is truly awe-inspiring! Renovation in 2008 included expanding the stage and upgrading technical equipment, making it possible to showcase the best in live entertainment. From nationally touring Broadway shows and dazzling dance programs to rousing rock 'n' roll concerts and feel-good family entertainment, the Clemens Center excites and delights audiences of all ages! The Center’s mission, though, extends beyond entertainment and into the community through school programs, outreach activities for the underserved, and subsidized facility rentals for its six Resident Companies: Common Time Choral Group, Elmira Little Theatre, New Heights Dance Theater, Orchestra of the Southern Finger Lakes, Rafael Grigorian Ballet Theatre, and Thursday Morning Musicales. These nonprofit arts organizations provide community members with the opportunity to perform several times a year on a professional theatre stage. The Clemens Center is the perfect place to connect with family and friends and enjoy memorable experiences that enrich, inspire, and amaze.
