Dennis Scott, Silent Film Organist
Dennis Scott took organ lessons for roughly two years in his early teens, then stopped. In college as a theater manager, he taught himself to play the pipe organ. Later, he accompanied comedies featuring Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton on a pizza parlor pipe organ.
He is house organist at Chicago’s historic Music Box Theatre, playing weekend intermissions, the annual Sing-Along Sound of Music, the annual Music Box Christmas Sing-Along, several themed film festivals, special events, and the award-winning Second Saturday Silent Cinema Series, which was named Best New Film Series of 2011 by Chicago Magazine and Best Matinee Film Series of 2012 by the Chicago Reader.
Dennis is the official organist for the International Buster Keaton Society and accompanies silent Keaton films every year for their convention, held in Muskegon, Michigan, where Buster spent much of his childhood. Tonight's movie is a Buster Keaton film, "College". (Ronald graduates high school with high honors. Upon entering a college which some described as an “athlete-infested” he proceeds to impress young Mary.)
