We were so close, friends. SOCLOSE! Well, you were close if you were going to be in Chicago on Friday.
“Scheduled for June 19 and charging an ill-advised $75 entry fee, the Chicago premiere of the rediscovered Essanay silent feature ‘Sherlock Holmes’ has been canceled, according to its presenters (via the Chicago Tribune).”
So there it is. No lovely screening. However, the film will be available on DVD and Blu-ray Oct. 20 via flickeralley.com.
