What fun! Buster Keaton, on screen at least, is coming to the Cobble Hill Movie Cinema. Check it out with your kids. Below is the complete schedule for the Big Movies For Little People Series. Included are some wonderful flicks.

Big Movies For Little Kids Presents:


This special selection of Buster Keaton's short films include: One Week (1921), The Goat (1923) and The Scarecrow (1920). In One Week, Buster and his bride try to build a do it yourself house. Disaster ensues. This film is considered by many to be the perfect short comedy. In The Goat, Buster is mistaken for an escaped convict, launching a chase with more gags than you can shake a stick at. In The Scarecrow, Buster lives in a house rigged with mechanical gadgets, loses his clothes in a harvesting machine and gets married on a speeding motorcycle.
