Music Box Steps Day - Virtually This Year
Saturday, October 24 - 2:00 to 4:00

You can’t keep a classic comedy team, or its legion of fans, down! The pandemic may have prevented an outdoor celebration of the 26th annual Music Box Steps Day family festival, but not an online version, which with just as much enthusiasm will honor Laurel & Hardy and the famed 133 stairs on Vendome Street in Silver Lake where Stan & Ollie filmed their 1932 Oscar-winning short, The Music Box.

On Saturday, October 24, 2020, from 2 - 4 pm, a virtual Music Box Steps Day will be broadcast worldwide on SLIA’s website and our Facebook page ( If you miss the inaugural, the video will still be online for the viewing time of your choice -- and either way, it’s free! The presentation was produced by the Silver Lake Improvement Association (SLIA) and actor/entertainer Edward E. Bell, and will feature a special screening of the recently restored version of the ever-hilarious, 29-minute-long The Music Box, in which the bungling duo valiantly attempt to deliver a player piano to a home atop a steep hill.
