GO WEST (1925): Buster Keaton portrays a down-on-his-luck character, Friendless, in this silent comedy. This city slicker heads west to find his fortune, but finds cowboy life hard to master. He doesn’t make much of a cow hand, but does manage to befriend a cow.
Organist: Jelani Eddington

As these films were released nearly a century ago, please be aware they may depict some of the theatric and social conventions of the time including material that may be considered socially insensitive today.
