The IRON MULE Comedy Screening Series
WHAT IS THE IRON MULE?
“The Iron Mule” is a 1925 slapstick comedy by the great silent comedian Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, featuring Buster Keaton as an Indian! The name also encapsulates the kind of movies we love to show; tough, burly, uncompromising shorts which can’t be stopped. The Iron Mule was also an early name for the movie camera (perhaps an allusion to “The Iron Horse,” a term for the locomotive).
The Iron Mule Short Comedy Screening Series was founded in April, 2002, as First Sundays, at the Chicago City Limits Theater in NYC and has been screening monthly ever since.
We are a collective of filmmakers and film lovers who meet monthly to celebrate funny and inventive short cinema among friends. Join us if you dare!
