RiverRun is proud to once again close the Festival with a classic silent film with live accompaniment from the Alloy Orchestra.  This year’s selection is a comedy featuring Harold Lloyd, an actor even more popular than Charlie Chaplin or Buster Keaton at the end of the silent era.  Considered by many to be Lloyd’s best silent film, Speedy was also his last.  The fast-paced comedy, shot in the streets of New York City, explores the theme of modernization, pitting the last horse-drawn trolley in the city against the evil forces of the transit monopoly.  The Alloy Orchestra last performed at RiverRun alongside The Phantom of the Opera in 2008.
