Not only it was comedy night, but there was also a special book signing at the museum as well. Authors Gary Meyer and Julie Lindow were there signing their book Left in the Dark: Portraits of San Francisco Movie Theatres. Also there was Jack Tillmany with his Arcadia book Theatres of the San Francisco Peninsula. During the opening introductions, all three authors came up to talk about their respective books and thanked the museum for hosting and providing a wonderful environment to show these great silent films. Tonight's program consisted of four hilarious shorts:
|Snub Pollard (1889-1962)|
|Max Davidson (1875-1950)|
After a brief intermission, the show continued with:
|Charley Chase (1893-1940)|
|S. Laurel (1890-1965) O. Hardy (1892-1957)|
