Today the Stranger Suggests

posted by on May 21 at 12:00 PM

‘The Kid Brother’/’Speedy’ Double Feature

(WURLITZER!) Near the end of Harold Lloyd’s silent-film career, he made two uproarious, gag-stacked features steeped in ’20s Americana. The Kid Brother is about a smart wimp in a small town; Speedy takes Lloyd to the Big Apple, where he romps at Coney Island and gets ball-crazy at Yankee Stadium. Fabulous Stranger Genius shortlister Dennis James accompanies the films on the Wurlitzer organ. (Paramount Theatre, 911 Pine St, 292-2787. 7 pm, $9$12.) ANNIE WAGNER
