The Heights Theater and Syncopated Silents presents the astounding silent classic THE FIRE BRIGADE with live accompaniment by KATIE CONDON.
The O'Neill brothers are proud Irish-American firefighters, overjoyed that the youngest, Terry (Charles Ray), has finally joined their ranks. Terry is in love with the beautiful Helen Corwin (May McAvoy) and hopes to marry her. One problem: her father is a ruthless politician and slumlord whose tenements are deadly firetraps. Boasting spectacular camerawork, fire effects that will astound modern audiences, and Technicolor scenes that explode off the screen, The Fire Brigade is a stunning masterpiece, and thoroughly entertaining.
This incredible film has been newly restored by the Library of Congress and will absolutely ignite our silver screen. Acclaimed musician Katie Condon will be accompanying The Fire Brigade.
