Sherlock Jr. (45 minutes), starring Buster Keaton
with Dennis Scott, Official Organist of the Buster Keaton Society
Playing with bonus short film Balloonatic
In this award-winning 1924 comedy, a kindly movie projectionist (Buster Keaton) longs to be a detective. When his fiancée is robbed by a local thief, the poor projectionist is framed for the crime. Using his amateur detective skills, the projectionist follows the thief to the train station only to find himself locked in a train car. Disheartened, he returns to his movie theater, where he falls asleep and dreams that he is the great Sherlock Holmes.
In Balloonatic, a hapless amusement park attendant finds his run-away balloon ride has left him in a strange predicament.
