The Norman Studios Silent Film Museum and the Hotel Indigo® Jacksonville will screen a medley of silent film shorts by famed French filmmaker and illusionist Georges Méliès at the next Silent Sundays event on Sunday, July 16.

Films include:
The Mermaid, 1905
The Voyage Across the Impossible, 1904
Good Glue Sticks, 1907
The Eclipse: Courtship of the Sun and Moon, 1907
A Trip to the Moon, 1902

Jacksonville University's Tony Steve and the Silver Synchro Sounds will provide live musical accompaniment. Tickets are $5 for this family-friendly series. Adult patrons 21 and older can enjoy the film with a glass Shhh! – the Silent Sundays signature cocktail created by the Hotel Indigo bar staff.

Silent Sundays proceeds support efforts of the Norman Studios Silent Film Museum, a non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing public knowledge of Northeast Florida's early film industry and the preservation and restoration of Jacksonville’s only remaining silent film studio. Located in historic Old Arlington, the Norman Studios was among the nation's first to produce films starring all African American casts. Find out more at normanstudios.org.
