It’s the film that started it all ten years ago. City Lights was the first silent film performed by the ASO and now our annual Silent Film Night has become a family favorite.
Hailed as the quintessential Chaplin film, City Lights was named among the top 100 movies of all time by Time magazine. A comic, rebel and humanist, Chaplin wore several hats in his versatile career. In addition to acting in, scripting, producing and directing his own movies, Chaplin also scored many of his films, including City Lights.
Join us for an evening of true Laugh Out Loud fun!

Opening our 70th season is Janácek’s dazzling Sinfonietta. With over 20 brass players, this exceptional piece is as thrilling now as it was at its premiere almost 90 years ago.

Closing this festivity is Respighi’s symphonic poem, Pines of Rome.

The Cheechakos, the first full length feature film shot entirely in Alaska!
In celebration of Anchorage's Centennial, the Anchorage Symphony is performing a free concert for our community. Join the ASO for a screening of the silent film, The Cheechakos - the first full length motion picture filmed entirely in Alaska. Performnig a score compiled by Eric Beheim, the Anchorage Symphony brings this 1923 tale of the Alaska gold rush to the Atwood Stage.
Produced by Cap Lathrop and his Alaska Moving Pictures Corporation with story boards painted by Sydney Laurence, The Cheechakos tells the story of two good-hearted prospectors who take in a young girl, apparently left motherless after a ship explosion. The regionally produced melodrama provides ample excuses for showing off the extraordinary Alaskan landscape in dogsled chases, hazardous whitewater crossings, and glacier rescues. In 2003, this film was deemed "culturally and historically significant" by the United States Library of Congress and was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
The Anchorage Symphony is pleased to collaborate with the Anchorage Fine Arts Society and the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts in offering this Anchorage Centennial Celebration event to our community.
