The Freshman

1925, 76 minutes, DCP | Directed by Fred C. Newmeyer and Sam Taylor; with Harold Lloyd

In hopes of making some friends, Harold Lamb (Harold Lloyd) attends college at Tate University. But when the students notice his eccentric personality, he becomes the joke of the school. His fellow students convince Harold that he is popular but laugh at him behind his back, telling him that he is a player on the football team when he is actually the waterboy. Only his friend Peggy (Jobyna Ralston) knows that to be happy Harold must accept himself for who he really is.

Speedy

1928, 86 minutes, DCP | Directed by Ted Wilde; with Harold Lloyd

Chronically unemployed Yankees fan Harold "Speedy" Swift (Harold Lloyd) dates Jane Dillon (Ann Christy), a girl whose beloved grandfather, Pop (Bert Woodruff), runs a failing horse-drawn trolley business in a rapidly changing city where the railway is becoming king. When a crooked railroad official steals Pop's last car, hoping to force him into a shutdown, Speedy must race against the clock to find the culprits, return the car in time, and keep the service running on schedule.

In conjunction with the ongoing Tuesday Matinees film series.
