Silent Sundays Series: “The Freshman”

Silent Sundays Series: “The Freshman”

3rd October 2021, 2:30pm

Bring the family to the Playhouse October 3rd at 2:30pm for a Sunday afternoon at the movies featuring the 1925 collegiate comedy, The Freshman (1925), starring silent comedy great Harold Lloyd!

Lloyd plays Harold Lamb, a kind-hearted, optimistic, and “bespectacled go-getter who heads off to college thinking his experiences will be just like the ones he saw in the movies” (tcm.com). He soon realizes though that college is not what it seems. In the hopes of becoming popular on campus, he tries joining the football team. “This crowd pleaser is a gleeful showcase for Lloyd’s slapstick brilliance and incandescent charm.” (criterion.com).

The Freshman was Lloyd’s biggest box office hit. Called the ‘grand-daddy’ of college comedies, the film influenced college themed films thereafter. In 1990, The Freshman was added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry, deemed as “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant.”

Accompanying the film on our 1924 Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ is American Theatre Organ Society’s Organist of the Year (2012) Mark Herman.

Ticket prices start at $10 ($12 day of show).
