THAT SLAPSTICK SHOW PRESENTS: SILENT COMEDY TREASURES FROM THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS VOL.4
We hope you're not tied up during this Fourth Of July holiday weekend! Join us under the nighttime stars for That Slapstick Show's big annual summer event, featuring an evening of rare, unseen American silent comedies from the Library Of Congress' film archive.
The Library Of Congress reports that 75% of all silent films are lost forever. Our special screening is devoted to the Library's hard work and tireless efforts in a race to preserve America's silent film heritage. This program will give audiences a chance to enjoy incredibly rare silent comedy shorts from the 1910s and 1920s, courtesy of the LoC's film collection, that can be seen nowhere else.
Highlights will include comedy shorts made in Brooklyn, NY and in Jacksonville, Florida. We'll also shine the spotlight on forgotten animal stars of the silver screen, a powerhouse comedy trio, and so much more. Save the date and *be there* so can give you a fireworks show of the zany Slapstick variety.
Also featuring live musical accompaniment by our very own pianist Charlie Judkins, with performances by Miss Maybell—who will be performing early 20th century ragtime hits to open up the show.
This is an all-vax event.

WHAT IS THE CITY RELIQUARY?
Reliquaries typically house the ostensible bones of dead saints. We house the bones of New York City. Seltzer bottles to schist cores, roller skates from racially integrated rinks, and a burnt out lightbulb from the Statue of Liberty's torch are just a few examples of our exciting collection.
We use this space to breathe new life into New York city, with not only our incredible collection of interactive historical exhibits, but continuous and stimulating programming, arts, and events.
Membership gives you FREE ACCESS to all upcoming events, museum entry with a plus one on all open days, and the unique opportunity to be a part of a thriving creative community. You can become a member for $10/month at cityreliquary.org/join.
DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
The City Reliquary values the individual diversity of every member of our community. Differences in age, race, ethnic heritage, religion, appearance, gender, sexual orientation, or any number of characteristics provide experiences, viewpoints, and ideas that strengthen and enrich our mission.
We are committed to creating an environment that is safe, inclusive, respectful, and equitable, and to include and uplift people with different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to create a safe and inspiring space.
From day one, our motto has been this simple phrase: Be Civic. And we’re sticking to it.
