Steamboat Bill, Jr.

1928 – silent • Buster Keaton • Live Accompaniment by Pete Eveland on the Mighty Wurlitzer • Steamboat Bill, Jr. is regarded as a masterpiece of its time. Buster Keaton was known for his dangerous stunts. Perhaps the most memorable scene is the iconic moment when an entire building collapses on Keaton, but he’s left standing safely in an open door that falls perfectly around his body. Buster Keaton’s work is true genius; a man far ahead of his time. The film will include live accompaniment by Pete Eveland, who was once the resident calliope player on a steamboat!
