Americana at its best! The films of comedian Harold Lloyd could be considered a perfect slice of American life just after the turn of the twentieth century. “Girl Shy” shows an audience just that – the shy young man working to succeed, meets his dream girl, but is too poor and bashful to woo her. During his lonely evenings he is writing a book on how to win women – all based on watching vampy movies. Meanwhile his dream girl is pursued and caught by a lecherous man with a wife! Our hero goes to the rescue, on a mad chase scene through the streets of Los Angeles…. Upon its release in 1924, Variety magazine said, "Harold Lloyd's latest may well be called his best. There is so much action jammed into this picture . . . It's a wow of a comedy picture!"

Celebrated theatre organist Ron Carter joins us once again for a memorable evening of music and film. This is his 16th season of making Silent Movie Night at Sacred Heart a much-anticipated event in Augusta.
