Event Details

Senior Matinee-Free for 55+. Douglas Fairbanks, the screen's first action superstar, stars as Don Diego Vega-aka Zorro-the witty, sword-wielding masked champion of the oppressed in old Spanish California. This first screen adaptation finds Vega returning from Spain, only to bristle at the tactics of the tyrannical Governor Alvarado. As Zorro, Vega steals from the rich and gives to the poor, while winning the heart of his oblivious fiancĂ©e. The enormous success of Zorro paved the way for a series of more smash hit swashbucklers starring Fairbanks, like Robin HoodThe Thief of Baghdad, and The Black PirateLive piano by Philip C. Carli.
