Kick-off Halloween week with Retroformat! We've got a devilishly fun lineup of vintage cartoons starring some of the most popular animated characters from the silent era, including Felix the Cat, Koko the Clown, Mutt and Jeff, and more! This fang-tastic show is suitable for families, so gather the little goblins and trick-or-treat yourself to some Halloween hijinks guaranteed to make you cackle.
L.A.'s premier silent film accompanist Cliff Retallick has concocted a brand-new LIVE score for the show, and for our Q&A we're tickled to death to have animation historian Tommy José Stathes.

Retroformat Silent Films and the Hollywood Legion Theater at Post 43 will present special matinee and evening screenings of Harold Lloyd’s iconic masterpiece Safety Last!
Retroformat Silent Films will present two 35mm screenings of Harold Lloyd’s iconic comedy masterpiece Safety Last! in partnership with the Hollywood Legion Theater at Post 43 Saturday March 28. Our special Kid’s Matinee at 3:00 p.m. will make a perfect introduction for families to silent film comedy.
At the 7:30 p.m. show, Suzanne Lloyd will narrate a special presentation of her grandfather’s home movies. Both screenings will be introduced by Ms. Lloyd, with a discussion to be moderated by Randy Haberkamp, Managing Director of the Foundation and Preservation Program of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Live piano accompaniment will be provided at both shows by Retroformat Musical Director Cliff Retallick.
Safety Last! is the original thrill-comedy by the man who invented the genre. The image of Harold Lloyd dangling from a giant clock over downtown L.A. is one of cinema’s most unforgettable moments, but that’s just one of its many delights. This screening represents a rare opportunity to see it projected in 35mm, its original format, at Hollywood’s breathtaking Legion Theater.
General admission tickets for the evening show are $25.00. Veterans, seniors and students are $20, and children under 12 are discounted at $12.50. Limited VIP tickets are available for $40.00, which includes parking, drinks, tours & more. Matinee prices are $20.00 for general admission and $12.50 for children under 12. Free parking will be available across the street in the lot adjacent to the Hollywood Heritage Museum. Tickets will be available...soon.
