The Binghamton Theatre Organ Society presents an afternoon of early film comedies


Organist Jim Ford and Paul Stapel speak with WSKG’s Bill Snyder about the Binghamton Theatre Organ Society’s presentation of 4 historic silent films with organ accompaniment. Ford prepares by watching the films repeatedly until he gets the musical ideas that will accompany the action. He says that the greatest compliment is when audience members tell him that they don’t remember the music.
