Cops @ Sitnik Theater

  • Lackland Performing Arts Center 715 Grand Avenue Hackettstown, NJ, 07840 (map)

The thrilling era of silent films comes alive again with the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra! The PRSO, the premier American ragtime ensemble as acclaimed by the Washington Post, takes you back to the early 1900s as they screen three of the greatest silent comedies ever made, Charlie Chaplin’s One A.M. (1916) Buster Keaton’s Cops (1922) and Laurel & Hardy’s Big Business (1929) with their historic orchestral scores! Between the films, the orchestra plays the rollicking rhythms of the early 20th century, featuring favorites by Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, and more!
