Shoulder Arms (1918)
Directed by Charlie Chaplin
Not Rated, Silent (recorded orchestral score), 37 minutes, 35mm

Enlisted during the First World War, Charlie discovers the hard life of the trenches and the dangers of combat. Chaplin’s decision to satirize the horrors of the war was initially met with skepticism but ultimately proved to be one of his most popular films of the period.

The Freshman (1925)
Directed by Harold Lloyd
Not Rated, Silent (recorded orchestral score), 76 minutes, DCP

Harold heads off to college and quickly discovers that making friends involves more than aping the antics he's seen in the movies. To further his search for popularity, he manages to join the football team, but only as a combination water boy/tackling dummy. Finally, Harold gets his chance when the coach runs out of substitutes during the big game and reluctantly puts him on the field. Will our bespectacled hero reach the goal line, or will he be fodder for the leatherheads on the opposing team? What follows is more of the action/comedy that only Lloyd could devise.
