FESTIVAL INTERLUDES

In homage to those days when a live organ played in Salem’s Paramount Theatre (CinemaSalem now stands partly on that site), join us before many of our films for live entertainment from a variety of great local musicians.

Performances are subject to change and are free for ticket holders of the film that follows the musical performance, and times are approximate. However, the musicians are awesome and their contribution adds something beautiful and unique to the Salem Film Fest experience. And many have CDs for sale!
