The Wind featuring a live score by The Invincible Czars

June 25th, 2013 for One Night Only with original music by The Invincible Czars

The WindThe Dust Bowl comes to life on the big screen at this special screening of the 1928 silent film The Wind, based on the novel of the same name by Dorothy Scarborough. The book, originally published anonymously, created an uproar in West Texas where community leaders resented the bleak depiction of their region and insisted the author must never have visited the area.

Decide for yourself if the movie is a truthful portrait of West Texas life.

The film will be accompanied by an original score written and performed live by The Invincible Czars. The band’s dramatic soundtrack matches the stark portrayal of west Texas and is performed by a stripped-down line-up — a four piece of only flute/clarinet, violin, electric bass and acoustic guitar with looping technology. The band incorporates several other auxiliary instruments — most notably a homemade 1930s radio era wind sound-effect generator constructed by bass player (and Fairhope’s own) Hen3ry Q Vines!


The Crescent Theater was opened with intent to serve adult patrons. The films we chose usually have a PG-13 rating or higher. We have always tried to follow the MPAA guidelines. We also serve beer and wine. We do not allow cell phone use in the theater after the film has started and we do not allow late entry. Our doors are open every day one hour before each film and due to our popularity we encourage our patrons to arrive early to get a good seat.
