Friday afternoon at the movies

Sunday, April 1, 2018

Friday Afternoon at the Movies, April 6, 2018 from 1:30 – 4pm at the Shoreline-LFP Senior Center, 18560 1st Ave NE.

Hosted by Scarecrow Video, the Silver Cinema Project is an opportunity to enjoy and then discuss golden age Hollywood classics.

New 65 inch television screen and sound system. Suggested donation $2 per guest.

This month's feature will be STEAMBOAT BILL JR, a silent comedy directed and starring Buster Keaton (1928) 

In this silent comedy, effete college student William Canfield Jr. reunites with his rough and tough boat captain father in a Mississippi River town. Hijinks ensue when he falls in love with the daughter of his father's business rival.

Plotline from imdb:

Following through on a promise to his mother, William Canning Jr. goes to River Junction to meet his father who has not seen him since he was a child. The younger Canning isn't quite what the elder was expecting but the old man has bigger problems. He's being put out of business by J.J. King, who not only owns the local hotel and bank, but has recently introduced a new paddle wheel steamer that puts Cannings older boat, the Stonewall Jackson, to shame. Bill Jr. and Kitty King take a liking to each other much to the dismay of both of their fathers. When a fierce storm hits River Junction, Bill Jr. is forced to save Kitty, her father and his father.
