The nonprofit Friends of Hart Park will present Western star William S. Hart’s 1919 silent classic “Square Deal Sanderson” in the 11th annual “Silents Under the Stars” screening at the park on Saturday, Aug. 10, starting at 6 p.m.
Ray Lowe will provide live musical accompaniment as the film unspools under the oaks at Hart Hall, located at the William S. Hart Regional Park at 24151 N. Newhall Ave. in Old Town Newhall 91321.
In addition to the movie, viewers will enjoy a meal provided by Rattlers BBQ, musical entertainment by The Grateful Dudes bluegrass band and a chance to bid of some unique Western items and amazing artwork.
Tours of the Hart Mansion will be given prior to the event with shuttle service provided.
“‘Silents Under the Stars’ is a unique experience and one you don’t often have an opportunity to enjoy,” said Nancy Gallardo, who added she was proud to chair of the event, the largest annual fundraiser for Friends of Hart Park.
Gallardo has taken over the reins of the event from longtime board member Sherron Blowers, who chaired “Silents Under the Stars” for many years and will be honored this year.
“The community has been very generous donating some wonderful items to our silent auction, which is always a big hit,” Gallardo said.
Tours of the Hart Mansion will begin at 5 p.m. and dinner, provided by Rattler’s, begins at 7 p.m.
All proceeds from “Silents Under the Stars” benefit Hart Park and the Hart Park animals.
Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased at friendsofhartpark.org/silents or by calling 661-222-9542.
