This is the final gala in a monthly four-part series of curated WWI pop culture experiences. Enjoy a screening of Tarzan of the Apes (1918) accompanied by live piano at 8:00 pm. Entrance includes one free cocktail and old-fashioned movie snacks. Doors open at 6:30 pm.

At 7:30 pm, enjoy a performance by Breathe Parkour. These urban acrobats will stun and amaze with movements and stunts whose history lives deep within the heart of the African jungle.

Tarzan of the Apes (1918) features Elmo Lincoln, Enid Markey, George B. French and Gordon Griffith. The original choice to play Tarzan was a vaudeville actor, Stellan S. Windrow, but before the film started he enlisted in WWI in the Navy. Five weeks of footage was filmed with Windrow, and he can be seen swinging from vines. The film is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ original novel Tarzan of the Apes and is considered the most faithful film adaptation to the book.

The night also includes vintage “Best Dressed” prizes, memorable Kelly Hofer photo booths and the beautiful history of the Lougheed House. Join us for the jungle-themed 1917-1918 finale edition.

Co-organized by Rocket House

Tickets available via Eventbrite, at the door or by contacting Adrienne Leicht at 403 244-6333 ext. 106 or adrienne@lougheedhouse.com.
