The Balboa Theatre will celebrate its 86th Birthday on Sunday, March 4. Presented in association with the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, a night at the movies circa 1926 will be the order of the day.
Inspired by Martin Scorsese and Brian Selznick’s HUGO, the evening’s feature film will be Harold Lloyd’s silent classic SAFETY LAST (1923) with a 35mm print directly from the Lloyd family.
It will be accompanied with an original score by pianist extraordinaire Frederick Hodges preceded by a program of short subjects including films by George Méliès. (HUGO again).
There will also be a live vaudeville show featuring George Méliès himself performing some of his famous magic effects on our stage. Songstress Linda Kosut will sing the songs her mother sang.
Author John Bengtson will offer an illustrated lecture exploring the locations Harold Lloyd used to make SAFETY LAST. Bengston will sign copies of his newest book, Silent Visions: Discovering Early Hollywood and New York through the Films of Harold Lloyd.
Take the SAFETY LAST tour.
Everybody will get birthday prizes and the evening will conclude with a special birthday cake created by The Cake Lady, Diane Boate, served with liquid libations.
Audience members are encouraged to dress in their best jazz age clothing as we recreate a night at the movies in 1926. Vintage cars will be in front of the Balboa.
Advance tickets are on sale at the Balboa and online at http://www.BalboaMovies.com

Jim Reid and Bruce Calvert will be presenting a program of silent comedies at the First United Methodist Church of Richardson on Sunday, February 19th at 6:30 p.m. The church is located at 503 North Central Expressway Richardson, TX 75080. Pianist Robert Edwards will provide the musical accompaniment on the piano. The screening will be in the Ogden Fellowship Hall, just Northeast of the sanctuary. Admission is $2.00, and popcorn will be provided.
First, it’s all Buster all the time as Buster Keaton plays all the parts in a vaudeville show including the audience and the trained monkey in The Playhouse (1921). He’s also in love with an identical twin, but her sister can’t stand him and Buster can’t tell the two apart. Next, Harold Lloyd wants a date with Mildred Davis at an amusement park, but he’s got to get her mother’s permission first in Number Please (1920). Unfortunately, the local pickpocket has stolen Mildred’s purse, and when the police get close he sticks it in Harold’s pocket! Finally, it’s Movie Night (1929) for the Charley Chase household, where Charley gets his teenage brother-in-law to dress as a little kid so he doesn’t have to pay for an adult ticket. It’s a tough night when you can’t find a seat, and your daughter gets a loud case of the hiccups.
Safety Last screening, Friday, January 20, 2012, 7:30pm Pacific
Safety Last, Stanford, Friday, 7:30. Harold Lloyd’s iconic image, hanging from a large clock high over a city street, comes from this boy-makes-good-by-risking-his- neck fairytale. Lloyd made better pictures, but even run-of-the-mill Lloyd is damn funny. And once he starts climbing that building, there’s nothing run-of-the-mill about this Lloyd. The laughs–and thrills–don’t stop. On a double-bill with Hot Water, another Lloyd feature, but one that I haven’t seen in decades. Dennis James will accompany both movies on the Stanford’s Wurlitzer organ.
