The Masked Man Returns
Before there was Superman or Batman, and way before the X-Men or Spider-Man, there was Zorro. The 1920 classic The Mark of Zorro turned Denver-born Douglas Fairbanks into the first action movie star and arguably cast the mold for every masked avenger who followed. "Douglas Fairbanks was a swashbuckler. The image he portrayed in all of his movies was the superhero kind of thing," says Rhetta Shead, marketing supervisor for the Lakewood Cultural Center. "This is a fun movie to kind of showcase that side."
Come see the original sensation in its original fashion, with the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra providing the thrilling soundtrack live, at 2 p.m. today at the Lakewood Cultural Center, 470 South Allison Parkway in Lakewood. Tickets are $14 for adults, with discounts available for children, students and seniors. For more info and tickets, visit www.lakewood.org/culturalcenter or call 303-987-7845.
