Back by popular demand…Buster Keaton “The Great Stoneface.” We are screening two of his best and most comedic films plus a special cartoon!
ONE WEEK (1920): Buster and Sybil exit a chapel as newlyweds. Among the gifts is a mail order house kit you can “easily put together in one week” It doesn’t help that Buster’s rival for Sybil switches the numbers on the crates containing the house parts.
SHERLOCK JR. (1924): Local movie theatre projectionist (Buster Keaton) longs to be a detective, and puts his meagre skills to work when he is framed by a rival for stealing his girlfriend’s father’s pocketwatch.
