Run time approx. 70min


Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count. 

Booking is essential, so please book your tickets before attending.

Film programme

The Blacksmith (U)

Our hapless hero gets into all sorts of scrapes during his time as a Blacksmith – cue broken cars, trick horse saddles, magnets and mess!

US 1922 Dir. Buster Keaton 19min

One Week (U)

One of Buster’s most famous, this story follows two newlyweds embarking on the ultimate DIY adventure – building a flatpack house, with mixed results!

US 1923 Dir. Buster Keaton & Edward F. Cline 19min

The Goat (U)

When he is mistaken for a local villain, Buster must avoid the law – but that’s easier said than done when your face is on every newspaper in town. Featuring the very best in gags (including a brilliant moustache joke!) this is the first time we’ve screened The Goat at FFC and we hope our audience enjoys this classic!

US 1921 Dir. Buster Keaton, Malcolm St Clair 23min
