Plaza Theatre Kendle Kidd Performance Hall

One of the first and best screen tellings of the legendary outlaw is 100 years old! This was the perfect star vehicle for the first King of Hollywood, Douglas Fairbanks Sr. In 1190s England, King Richard the Lionhearted (Wallace Beery) has left to join the Crusades and it is up to the Earl of Huntingdon, disguised as bandit Robin Hood, to save the poor from the greedy Prince John (Sam De Grasse). Fairbanks’ impressive stunts, hundreds of period costumes, and magnificent handmade sets (this was decades before CGI) all make this film lastingly impressive a century later. Accompanying the film on the Plaza Theatre’s Wyler Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ is renowned organist and Plaza favorite Walt Strony. — Jack Fields
