Venice Historical Society to Feature Buster Keaton


The Venice Historical Society (VHS) will host a discussion on the films and career of Buster Keaton, which will include a screening of Keaton’s 1928 “The Cameraman”, at 7pm on Tuesday, August 20th, at S.P.A.R.C. on Venice Blvd.

The Cameraman by Buster Keaton

From the Historical Society:

Film Historian and documentary filmmaker Elaina Archer will be presenting this wonderful program about Keaton’s career and discussing his tremendous contribution to the world of comedy.

The Cameraman was made mostly in the New York streets but two very long and well-known scenes were filmed at the Venice Plunge. The actors who played lifeguards in the movie were actual Venice lifeguards.

The entertaining presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, August 20th, at 7:00 pm, and will be held at S.P.A.R.C. (Old Venice Police Department Building), 685 Venice Boulevard, Venice, California, 90291. Free for VHS members. $5 for non-members. Snacks available.

Join us for an unforgettable evening at SPARC. For further information call 310-967-5170 and visit the society’s website at Free parking just east of the building or on the street.
