To celebrate the 90th anniversary of silent film star Harold Lloyd's 1923 hit "Safety Last" -- the one where he's seen dangling from a massive clock high above city streets -- the Music Box Theatre will present four screenings of the iconic film -- digitally restored from the original nitrate camera negative -- May 24 through 27.

Live organ music, from in-house organist Dennis Scott, will accompany the showing Saturday, May 25.
