Art Deco Society Illustrated Lectures 2017
Cary Farnsworth In Person!
History of the Soda Fountain / SPEEDY
Presented by the American Cinematheque and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles

History of the Soda Fountain,” 30 min. This illustrated presentation by vintage ice cream man 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 5:30 PM by the silent comedy classic SPEEDY. Ice cream sodas and sandwiches are not included in the price of admission. They will be sold separately for cash only!

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.
