About the event

Special Screening of "Steamboat Bill, Jr." (1928) starring Buster Keaton, Ernest Torrence

"Join us for a summer season of movies and entertainment at the historic Leavitt Theatre. As the son of a gruff steamboat captain, Buster tries to make the grade even as storm clouds gather—and romance brews with the daughter of a rival ship owner. Film climaxes with legendary cyclone sequence, one of Buster's best. See great silent films with live music in a summer-only theater opened in 1925 and barely changed since."
