Slapstick Sillies at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts
Want the kids to go insane with laughter and you right along with them? Then come enjoy these two comic clowns, Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, in their hysterical slapstick gems.
Full of physical stunts (which they did themselves!) and sight gags, the films are timeless and witty.
Ending with the best chase sequence ever filmed, hair-raising and sidesplitting, Sherlock Jr. is a fast-paced, laugh-a-minute classic that has Buster chasing down the guy who wants his girl – and walks right onto the screen to become part of a movie-within-a-movie. And Charlie’s up to his outrageous best in The Tramp.
Both are accompanied by live, composed-on-the-spot musical scores by Lincoln Center pianist Ben Model.
Kids get an appreciation for clean, quality humor while parents and grandparents bond with them one laugh at a time.
