The Embassy Theatre will present a couple of silent films, which will feature the Grande Page pipe organ.

"The Cameraman" (1928) stars Buster Keaton as a clumsy man who attempts to become a motion picture cameraman to be close to the woman he loves. It airs at 7 p.m. Thursday, with Clark Wilson on the organ.

"King of Kings" (1927) stars H.B. Warner as Christ in the weeks before his crucifixion. It airs at 7 p.m. June 29, with Scott Foppiano on the organ.

Tickets are $8 for adults and $3 for ages 12 and under.

The Embassy Theatre also offers a family-oriented Behind the Screen 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, featuring two black-and-white silent movies. After the films, kids will get a peek "behind the screen," watching stage hands disassemble and store the giant movie screen. Other hands-on activities will be offered. Tickets are $6.
