Steamboat Bill, Jr will screen from a 4K digital restoration.
The beloved silent comedy Steamboat Bill, Jr 1928 stars Buster Keaton as the urbane city-slicker son of a grizzled sea captain. When Bill Sr heads to jail, it is up to his unprepared son to get behind the helm and save his father’s troubled boating business. Organist David Bailey will accompany a new 4K digital restoration of the film on the Gallery’s 1929 Wurlitzer organ.
