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.
