The law library is showing the iconic film "Safety Last!" in celebration of the more than 50,000 items from 1923 now in the public domain. At 3 PM a short introduction will be delivered by Copyright Law Librarian Stephen Wolfson. Enjoy the movie with free popcorn, and after the viewing stick around for an open discussion about copyright and the public domain. 

More about the film from IMDB:

"A boy (Harold Lloyd) moves to New York City to make enough money to support his loving girlfriend (Mildred Davis), but soon discovers that making it in the big city is harder than it looks. When he hears that a store manager will pay $1,000 to anyone who can draw people to his store, he convinces his friend, the "human fly," (Bill Strother) to climb the building and split the profit with him. But when his pal gets in trouble with the law, he must complete the crazy stunt on his own."
