Steamboat Bill Jr.SUNDAY, MARCH 15, 2020 | 2:00 PMEAST BUILDING, SECU AUDITORIUM(1928) Directed by Charles Reisner and Buster Keaton. Buster Keaton, Ernest Torrence, Marion Byron. (70 min.) DCP restoration. Silent film with live music by David Drazin.Rough-and-tumble Steamboat Bill is mightily disappointed in Jr., his namby-pamby son and heir returning home from college with a ukulele, pencil line moustache, and beret. Luckily, appearances can be deceiving; Jr. is forced to tussle with the schemes of a rival riverboat captain and a furious storm. Referencing gags from vaudeville and beautifully filmed by the Sacramento River, this film is comic perfection, 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.“Steamboat Bill Jr. displays more inspired energy and inventiveness than pretty much everything else currently in cinemas combined” (London Times).Tickets on sale soon$5 Members, youth 7–18, college students with ID$7 NonmembersBox Office | (919) 715-5923
