Series: Repressed Cinema

Proof of vaccination or negative COVID test will be required to attend this screening. Learn more here. This film will be sold at 100% capacity. Masks are required while in all common areas, including in your seat when not actively eating or drinking.

Repressed Cinema curator Ian Sundahl once again digs deep into his 16mm vault to bring his favorite oddball comedy films to the Hollywood for one night of laughs. From greats to unknowns, from the silent era to the 2000's... In this disparate mashup of comedic esoterica, you will see:

- Doodles Weaver playing three different characters in one film
- Bizarre novelty 'soundies' (early jukebox films)
- Billy West impersonate Charlie Chaplin
- A ventriloquist's audition reel
- Burlesque star Willie Howard in "How to See a French Doctor"
- Plenty of canned laughter from when beatniks ruled the earth.
...and more, including Nate Beyerlin's 2010 fly swatting short "Helter Swelter", shot in Eugene! (this item presented on video)

Underground Comix for sale in the lobby, as usual.
