Safety Last 

When: Sun., May 26, 1:30 p.m. and Mon., May 27, 1:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $5
Before CGI and 3-D, the movies gave you cold-sweat vertigo honestly: by dangling the hero a dozen stories off the ground (give or take a little optical trickery and a lot of expert stuntwork). Ninety years after silent-film audiences first saw Harold Lloyd hang off a tall building's enormous clock face, Safety Last still makes your stomach lurch — and remains one of the most entertaining American comedies ever made. See a pristine restoration of it for just $5 at Tivoli Cinemas, and take up to two children with you for free. Just don't let the kids attempt to re-create any of Lloyd's moves in the lobby afterward. Safety Last plays at 1:30 today (and yesterday) at the Tivoli (4050 Pennsylvania, 816-561-5222, tivolikc.com).
