Recreating a night at the movies in 1926. We will have a Buster Keaton celebration with Sherlock Jr. and The Play House.
The wonderful pianist Frederick Hodges (http://www.frederickhodges.com/) returns to the Balboa to accompany Keaton's Sherlock Jr. and The Play House, presented in 35mm prints.
Author John Bengston (http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A1QMEJW4W270VO) will offer a brief lantern slide lecture on the making of Sherlock Jr. and how Keaton accomplished the surreal special effects that have influenced moviemakers ever since.
John will have books for sale and be glad to autograph them for you.
There will be surprises and prizes, birthday cake and of course, our Vaudeville Show, live on stage featuring the sizzling Suzanne "Kitten on the Keys" Ramsey (http://www.suzanneramsey.net/) singing, playing the piano and leading the audience in a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday”.
Adding to the fun will be the command return of James Hamilton (http://www.amazingmagicshow.com/Hamilton.htm) whose magical wonders will keep you amazed.
