If you did not get the chance to see Show People at the Playhouse this Fall, we have a few more fantastic films coming up! On Sunday afternoon, January 19th at 2:30pm, we’ll be screening two films that Buster Keaton not only starred in but directed: the 1922 two-reel short Cops followed by 1924’s Sherlock, Jr.
In Cops, Keaton inadvertently makes a series of unfortunate decisions which leads to him being chased by hundreds of cops in the streets of Los Angeles. In Sherlock, Jr. Keaton plays a projectionist and janitor at a movie house with dreams of becoming a detective. “A non stop collection of gags and stunts….it is one of Keaton’s best loved films, equally embraced by long time aficionados as well as newcomers to silent comedy” (tcm.com).
Accompanying the film on our 1924 Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ is Bill Campbell.
Silent Sundays continue with The Freshman (1925) starring Harold Lloyd on March 22nd, and Charlie Chaplin’s The Gold Rush (1925) on May 31st.
