Sherlockian Invitation

1916 Movie

Sherlock Holmes
Film Premiere
& Luncheon

Saturday, April 27, 2019
9 am – 12 pm  Film
1 pm –   3 pm  Luncheon

Enjoy a private screening of the 1916 silent film “Sherlock Holmes”. Starring William Gillette, America’s pre-eminent stage actor and playwright, this film has a fascinating history that rivals the Sherlock Holmes stories themselves. In fact, William Gillette is responsible for introducing the costume we associate with Holmes, especially the deerstalker hat and the calabash pipe.

Once thought lost, the film was re-discovered in 2014 and re-mastered. Hear the film’s intriguing story, view the film, and then join us for a post-film luncheon at Gillette’s sumptuous home.
