[acf field=”date”] | [acf field=”venue”] | [acf field=”special”]

An afternoon of fun with a triple bill of Buster Keaton’s laugh-out-loud slapstick comedy accompanied by live piano.

Treat yourself and the family to a wonderful afternoon in the company of Buster Keaton, one of the original screen rebels! Three fantastic classic comedy silent shorts all giving him the opportunity to show us his finest gags and slapstick, accompanied by Lillian Henley on piano.

Featuring: THE SCARECROW (1920), THE BOAT (1921) and, just in time for Halloween, THE HAUNTED HOUSE (1921).
