Kings of Silent Comedy: Sherlock Jr + The Champion
Film Funday & LoCo present a double bill of slapstick comedy classics from Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin at the BFI.
Sherlock Jr (1924) With live piano accompaniment by John Sweeney.
Buster Keaton dreams of being a great detective. Wrongly accused of stealing his potential father-in-law’s watch, he dreams about solving the crime. One of the all-time great comedy films.
The Champion (1915) With live piano accompaniment by John Sweeney.
Charlie stumbles upon the corrupt world of boxing and plenty of slapstick fun ensues.
Start your afternoon at the Funday Workshop / LoCo’s School of Slapstick before the screening in the foyer at 11:30.
