Steamboat Bill Jr. (Sunday Classic at Capitol Theater)

It's also an event with the Classic Movies Meetup group.

I will plan on being in the theater lobby 10 minutes before the movie.

According to www.filmsite.org/stea.html "Steamboat Bill, Jr." (1928) is the last of physical comedian Buster Keaton's (the Great Stone Face) nine independent feature films and one of the last silent comedies. The film - actually co-written, co-produced, and co-directed by actor Keaton (with director Chas. F. Reisner) was derived from a story by Carl Harbaugh, although Keaton only took credit for acting.

The story involves the father-son tale of an educated, effeminate, accident-prone, college-educated but simple-minded son - an archetypal underdog American hero - who ultimately is transformed and triumphs when he assists and impresses his burly, red-necked, hard-working Mississippi steamboat captain father in combating the threatening efforts of a rival tycoon to take over the Mississippi steamboat business in the South - and also wins over the business rival's daughter.

    If anyone is interested, there are a number of nearby brunch / lunch options for post movie discussion.
