Silent Movie Screening And Book Signing At What Cheer

chain of fools (6.15) Interesting event at What Cheer Antiques and Vintage:  Trav S. D., author of “Chain of Fools,” will screen two silent films — Harold Lloyd’s 1919 “Don’t Shove” and Buster Keaton’s 1923 “The Baloonatic” — leading a discussion and providing insights and context.

I confess I’m not the hugest fan of the silent movies, but Lloyd and Keaton are exactly the two I do like.  They are just in a separate league.

Ice-cold ‘Gansett tallboys for those who can prove they are old enough.

Free, 3pm, Saturday, June 15, What Cheer Antiques & Vintage, 180 Angell Street,
