Event description

Jeely Jar Screening

Our legendary family-friendly event, this year featuring Harold Lloyd: one of cinema’s greatest comedy talents and the perfect ambassador for the pleasures of silent film.

Lloyd plays a wide-eyed innocent, newly arrived on campus and eager to win friends and the heart of sweet-natured Peggy. If only he could secure a place on the college football team then perhaps his dreams of popularity would come true… but he hasn’t counted on the back-stabbing mean boys or quite how rough a football game can actually be.

This popular show starts with a fun competition for all the audience.

Dir. Fred C. Newmeyer, Sam Taylor | US | 1925 | N/C U | b&w | English intertitles | 1h 16m

With: Harold Lloyd, Jobyna Ralston, Brooks Benedict
