Safety Last!

4 June, 2017 – 3 p.m.

Pollokshaws Burgh Hall, 2025 Pollokshaws Road, G43 1NE

(Cert U, 67 mins, 1923)

Come see this rarely screened silent film classic starring the comic genius of Harold Lloyd with live musical accompaniment on the Wurlitzer cinema organ in Pollokshaws Burgh Hall courtesy of SCOT (Scottish Cinema Organ Trust).

A simple, small-town optimist (Harold Lloyd) moves to the big city with hopes of establishing himself enough to send for his sweetheart (Mildred Davis) and marrying her. After taking a job as a sales clerk in a department store, he starts sending his girlfriend expensive presents to convince her that he’s made it. When she shows up in town, he pretends to be the general manager and must carry out a dangerous publicity stunt to earn enough money to keep his ruse going.
