The nicest jerk (soda jerk that is) you'll ever meet will take you on an illustrated journey through the history of the ice cream soda fountain. Vintage ice cream man Cary Farnsworth's illustrated presentation on the evolution of the soda fountain is followed by SPEEDY, the silent classic starring Harold Lloyd as a baseball-obsessed soda jerk who becomes a cab driver. Join us in the courtyard from 3:30 — 4:30 PM for an ice cream social! Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles.

History of the Soda Fountain,” 60 min. This illustrated presentation by Cary Farnsworth will introduce you to the nicest jerk you'll ever meet as it explores the history of the soda fountain and the «jerks» who worked them. Followed at 6:00 PM by the silent comedy classic SPEEDY.
Join us in the courtyard from 3:30 — 4:30 PM for an ice cream social! C.K. Farnsworth will have old fashioned ice cream sodas for sale from his vintage ice cream cart BEFORE the start of the program.

1928, Janus Films, 86 min, United States, Dir: Ted Wilde
Harold Lloyd makes his last silent appearance in this classic about a baseball-obsessed soda jerk who becomes a cab driver. Soon he's desperately trying to rescue the last horse-drawn streetcar line in town — which belongs to the father of his girl (Ann Christy) — from greedy railway magnates. Chaos ensues, including some of the most spectacular real-life chases ever filmed. Look for the legendary Babe Ruth as a nervous passenger in Lloyd’s cab.
