Tue., August 15, 2017
Showcasing amazing stunts and hilarious set pieces, Sherlock Jr. stars legendary silent comic Buster Keaton as a movie theatre projectionist who fantasizes about being a world-famous detective. Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, our hero must solve the case, clear his name and win the heart of the girl he loves – all in a 45-minute runtime!
A celebrated concert organist and silent film accompanist, 15-year-old Brett Miller is a member of the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, his high school marching band, jazz ensemble and the American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS). Along with his brother, Brett founded MusicalPromise.org, a musical initiative to help fund the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. They both received the White House Student Film Festival honorable mention for a film about their service work. Brett was also the recipient of the Kohl’s Care and Prudential Spirit of Community Awards. Brett is thrilled to be playing on TOSDV’s Wurlitzer theatre organ at the Colonial!
