PERFORMANCES AT 2PM & 7PM!
The feature Sherlock Jr./Cops has been replaced with Buster Keaton in Steamboat Bill, Jr. as well as a special, surprise short.
The cancellation of Sherlock, Jr. & Cops is due to the presenting rights. The film, along with a number of other Keaton features that are not in the public domain, have been embargoed by the rights’ holder while all his films are remastered in DCP (digital) format. Most of Keaton’s major works won’t be available again until at least 2018.
In the silent comedy Steamboat Bill, Jr., a college boy reunites with his riverboat captain father, and proceeds to fall for his father’s rival’s daughter. As inclement weather strikes, his father is arrested. This film features Keaton’s most famous single stunt!
