Silent, But With a Message | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Silent, But With a Message



Maybe the idea of watching a silent movie has always seemed old-fashioned to you. But if you've never been to one of The Organ Loft's regular screenings of classic silent films -- complete with live Wurlitzer organ accompaniment -- this should be a reason to change that.

Tomorrow (April 17), The Organ Loft will host a special program at 7:30 p.m. showcasing short films featuring Charlie Chaplin and Utah native Mack Swain. This program wasn't on the original spring schedule, but has been added as a benefit for the family of Daniel Spencer Howells, who left a widow and six children after he was killed in a car accident recently at the age of 41. All proceeds from this show will go to the Howells family. Enjoy some of the greatest work by one of the greatest screen comedians, and bring a little more happiness to a grieving family.
