Silent Movie with Organ Accompaniment: Steamboat Bill at St. John's Episcopal Church
Brentney Hamilton Recommends
We’re just months away from the roaring ‘20s — well, 2020s — so see how it’s done by traveling back to the decade of flappers and silent cinema. This screening of Steamboat Bill, Jr. (1928) includes popcorn (on the house) and live accompaniment by Benjamin Kolodziej, the church’s organist and choir director. Fun facts: Starring one of the era’s most famous comedians, Buster Keaton, the movie inspired the first Mickey Mouse cartoon and features what is now one of history’s most famous and dangerous movie stunts — a house falls, but the hero is narrowly saved by having stood precisely aligned with its open window.
