January 27th, 2014: The Playhouse (1921)

the playhouse

Cast and Crew: Joseph M. Schenck (Producer)

What It’s About:  In the opening dream sequence of this famed Buster Keaton short, Keaton plays everyone in vaudeville show:  the performers, the audience, the theater workers.

Why Watch it Today?: My favorite Boston movie theater, the Brattle, opened on this date in 1890 as a theater, only later being converted to a full-time movie theater.

Watch the entire short on YouTube:
