1928 classic starring comedian extraordinaire, Buster Keaton. Buster plays a college graduate trying to gain the respect of his father, a roughneck riverboat captain, as well as the love of Kitty, pretty daughter of his father’s business rival. This film contains one of cinema’s most famous (and dangerous) stunts as Buster narrowly avoids being crushed by a tumbling house façade.

Along with our feature film,  we will be showing a rare recently restored Thanhauser Studio short film: TOODLES, TOM & TROUBLE (1915)

Both films will be accompanied live by organist Jonas Nordwall, performing his original score on the Hollywood’s Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ.
