About The Event

ArtsFarmington  is pleased to present 2 movies with Buster Keaton: "ONE WEEK" , a short  film, and "SHERLOCK Jr." the main feature.  The movies will be  accompanied by musician Doug Protsik on OLD TIME PIANO. The performance will take place on Saturday, January 27, at 7PM in Emery Community Arts Center, with a snow date of Sunday, February 4, at 7PM.

Buster Keaton, a silent movie actor of the early 1900s, is a master of mime, humor and daring stunts. In the short movie a just married couple is putting together, in one week, their first house from a kit, with lots of tribulations! In the main feature Keaton plays the character of a projectionist of a theater who does double duty as custodian and, on top of that, is studying to be a  detective. Too much to attend to can cause  trouble! He is in love and a crime is committed by a rival… Both movies are bound to make you laugh and bring a smile to your face and warmth to your heart. If you have school age children bring them along!

Accompanist  Doug Protsik is well known for playing old time piano for movies and dances. He is also an expert fiddler and the longtime director of the popular Maine Fiddle Camp.

The  performance  will take place on Saturday January 27 at 7PM in Emery  Community Arts Center, with a snow date of Sunday, February 4 at 7PM.
