Virtual Classics ~ Sherlock, Jr.
- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
Buster Keaton plays a movie projectionist who daydreams himself into the movies he is showing and merges with the figures and the backgrounds on the screen. While dreaming he is Conan Doyle's master detective, he snoops out brilliant discoveries. In 1991, Sherlock, Jr. was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." In 2000, the American Film Institute ranked the film #62 in its list of the funniest films of all time.Stream the 46-minute film at the link.

Bud's Watch Parties
During this time while we're staying safer at home, Bud Werner Memorial Library is organizing special opportunities to share films you might have seen in Library Hall. Instead, we're watching them online, virtually together at home. The library hopes that you'll enjoy streaming these inspired films, and come together for community conversations to share the experiences.
