“Timeless and peerless, Buster Keaton’s Sherlock, Jr. is an endlessly innovative mixture of celluloid reality and fantasy.” – Leonard Maltin, Leonard Maltin’s Family Film Guide

Buster Keaton’s hilarious 1924 silent comedy, Sherlock Jr., hits the Loft Cinema’s big screen with a brand-new original score performed live on stage by Tucson musicians from the American Harp Society & Arizona Friends of Chamber Music! The film will be followed by a Q&A with the musicians, conductor and composers.   Featuring Emily Chao (violin), Charles duPreez (clarinet), Carla Fabris (harp), Juan Mejia (cello), Jeff Vanderlee (conductor), Yuanyuan (Kay) He (composer, Part 1), John Muniz (Composer, Part 2), Vincent Calianno (Composer, Part 3).

In Sherlock, Jr., comedy legend Buster Keaton stars as a movie theater projectionist who dreams of becoming a super sleuth like Sherlock Holmes, and somehow manages to step into the movies he’s showing in order to snoop out brilliant discoveries, thus bringing his fantasies to hilarious life!  (Dir. by Buster Keaton, 1924, USA, silent with intertitles, 45 mins., Not Rated / Suitable for all ages).

This program is made possible by a grant from the American Harp Society, Inc. & Arizona Friends of Chamber Music.
