Mont Alto


Mont Alto will be taking a breather after our screening of The SIlent Enemy in Fayetteville Arkansas on October 9, in order to get Rodney some shoulder surgery. Then we'll be back on December 2 playing a new score for Lady Windermere's Fan for the San Francisco Silent Film Festival's winter program, and December 3 playing Spite Marriage for the Rafael Film Center! See our Schedule page for details.
