Silent movie night returns

PEMBERVILLE — The Pemberville Freedom Area Historical Society’s Silent Movie Night is back.

The movie will be shown Jan. 7 at 7:30 p.m. and will feature Lynne Long at the piano.

Silent-comedy legend Harold Lloyd goes west in this irresistible blend of action, romance, and slapstick invention. The bespectacled everyman is at his inimitable best as Harold Hickory, the gentle son of a prominent lawman who lives in the shadow of his rough-and-tumble brothers. When a traveling medicine show rolls into town, it brings with it excitement, the possibility of love, and a chance for Harold to prove his mettle.

Deftly balancing Lloyd’s brilliant sight gags and thrilling set pieces—including an epic, knock-down, drag-out fight aboard an abandoned ship—with one of the actor-filmmaker’s most fully realized, root-for-the-underdog narratives, The Kid Brother is a hilarious and heartwarming high-water mark of early screen comed

The movie will be shown at the Pemberville Opera House, 115 Main St.

Tickets are $12 and are available at Beeker’s General Store, at the door or by calling Carol at 419-287-4848.
