      "The Cameraman" (MGM, 1928)

      Buster Keaton stars as an aspiring newsreel cameraman out to win the heart of studio secretary Marceline Day in this silent comedy classic. Ostensibly directed by Edward Sedgwick, the film is all Keaton and includes some of the best treatises on the techniques and psychology of shooting motion pictures. Keaton is at his most deft in responding to the most outrageous situations with matter-of-fact naturalism and wearing his great stone face. A seamless, ingenious blend of comedy and pathos, it features countless creative gags involving fantastical double exposures, swimming pool changing rooms, and an organ grinder's monkey. Live musical accompaniment will be provided by Ben Model. “The Cameraman” was added to the National Film Registry in 2005. Digital presentation, 76 min.

      Programs are free and open to the public, but children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Seating at the screenings is on a first-come, first-served basis unless otherwise noted. Short films may be shown before some features.

      For general Packard Campus Theater information, call (540) 827-1079 ext. 79994 or (202) 707-9994.
