More Information


This year the event includes an outrageously hilarious double feature: Charlie Chaplin’s “The Pilgrim” (about a convict gone straight…) and Buster Keaton’s “Sherlock Jr.” (a projectionist turns sleuth). Timothy Brock conducts the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. “Sherlock Jr.” will feature the world premiere of a new score that Brock has written for the occasion.

Dustin Hoffman, Honorary Chairman

Hanna M. Kennedy and Roger L. Mayer, Co-Chairmen

“The Pilgrim” (1923)

_Written, produced and Directed by Charlie Chaplin

Starring Charlie Chaplin with Edna Purviance, Sydney Chaplin and Dean Riesner_

“The Pilgrim” is one of Charlie Chaplin’s richest feature length films. In it, he plays an escaped convict who poses as the new minister of a small Texas town. Among the many highlights in this fast-paced comedy, is Charlie’s celebrated sermon on the story of David and Goliath. For many critics, “The Pilgrim” is one of the most outstanding Chaplin comedies. 50 minutes. Music by Charlie Chaplin.

“Sherlock Jr.” (1924)

_Produced by Joseph M. Schenck, Directed by Buster Keaton

Starring Buster Keaton with Kathryn McGuire and Joe Keaton_

“Sherlock Jr.” is one of Buster Keaton’s most famous and influential comedies, a dazzling showcase of his cinematic skills. In the story of a cinema projectionist turned amateur sleuth, Keaton’s exploits create awe-inspiring stunts and mind-boggling visual gags.45 Minutes. World Premiere of music by Timothy Brock.
