Join us for this sidesplitting, mind-blowing comedy by one of the true visionaries of cinema’s silent era! Scrawl’s Sue Harshe provides live music for this delightful story of a movie theater projectionist and janitor who’s studying to be a detective. While showing a movie about the theft of a pearl necklace, the projectionist falls asleep and dreams that he enters the movie. As always with Buster Keaton, all sorts of visual gags and jaw-dropping slapstick stunts ensue! As the British Film Institute notes, “Keaton’s third feature is a breathtakingly virtuosic display of every silent comedy technique imaginable.” (45 mins., DCP)
