THE BALLROOM–Have you ever wondered what people did a hundred years ago for fun? When the Bourns built Filoli a century ago, people went to see silent films—they were very popular with their cutting-edge technology! And now, in celebration of Filoli’s Centennial, we invite you to watch as the magic of silent films, accompanied by pianist Frederick Hodges, moves across the screen.
