Do It. Harold Lloyd shorts.

One of the big three silent film stars Harold Lloyd (of Keaton, Chaplin, and Lloyd) will have a few of his best early works screened at the Cinefamily Silent Movie Theater tonight as part of the theater's Silent Clowns series.

Lloyd is best known for his shock of black hair, goofy round glasses, and that one scene where he hangs from a clock (clip below), and if you haven't yet made it to the Silent Theater (the last in the entire United States of America!) it's worth venturing over. The theater has all kinds of relics from the 1920s film heyday and has piano accompaniment.

Buster Keaton will be rounding off the Wednesday series next week a series of his shorts.

The show starts at 8 p.m. and is $10. The Silent Movie Theater is located at 611 N. Fairfax Ave.
