Harold Lloyd’s biggest box-office hit was this silent comedy gem, featuring the befuddled everyman at his eager best as a new college student. Though he dreams of being a big man on campus, the freshman’s careful plans inevitably go hilariously awry, be it on the football field or at the Fall Frolic. But he gets a climactic chance to prove his mettle—and impress the sweet girl he loves—in one of the most famous sports sequences ever filmed. This crowd-pleaser is a gleeful showcase for Lloyd’s slapstick brilliance and incandescent charm. The score will be performed live by organist Clark Wilson who plays a live score for a silent horror film each October in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Walt Disney Concert Hall. 

Tickets are $5 for TMA members, $7 for nonmembers, and $4 for students and military.
