Enrol now for a one-night semester of slapstick with the Professor of pratfalls, Harold Lloyd, in his Varsity-themed romp The Freshman! The ever-popular Lucky Dog Picturehouse are back for more silent film fun with their new original score for one of Hollywood's best-loved early comedies and Lloyd's biggest box-office hit.

The live score is performed and composed by pianist Sam Watts of the Lucky Dog Picturehouse.

The new student on campus, Harold dreams of being the most popular man in college but instead becomes the butt of the joke when he attempts to join the football team. The Freshman showcases Lloyd's faculty for physical comedy as well as his trademark charm, cementing his place alongside Keaton and Chaplin as a PhD of silent comedy.

Running time: 1 hour 16 minutes, with no interval
