Duck Soup Cinema: Harold Lloyd's The Kid Brother

Sat, Mar 17, 2012
Capitol Theater | 
$7
Running time: 2 Hours

There’s nothing quiet about this classic silent films series: laughter and clapping fill the historic Capitol Theater. Each movie is accompanied by a talented organist, who complements and reacts to everything on screen while playing the magnificent Grand Barton Organ. A variety of quick vaudeville-style acts get things cooking before the movie. Emcee Joe Thompson is your old school, bow-tied master of ceremonies, cracking jokes and keeping the fun moving along. Throw in celebrity appearances, gags, and some serious door prizes, and it all adds up to one of the best deals in town for family-friendly entertainment.   

 

In the 1927 Harold Lloyd film The Kid Brother, sheriff Jim has two tough manly sons, Leo and Olin, and a timid third son, Harold (Lloyd). He doesn't have the muscles to match up to his borhters, so he has to use his wits to win the respect of his strong father and also the love of beautiful Mary.
