Join other movie enthusiasts to enjoy the lost art of silent movies in the magnificent Sacred Heart Great Hall! This year’s featured film is Steamboat Bill, Jr., a 1928 comedy about William “Steamboat Bill” Canfield, the owner and captain of a dilapidated paddle steamer, the Stonewall Jackson. A competitor’s new steamer is stealing all of his customers. When a fierce storm hits River Junction, Bill saves his lady love and becomes the hero of his own life story. Steamboat Bill was the last film Buster Keaton created for United Artists Studio and is considered a masterpiece of its era. The story will come alive with the soundtrack performed by acclaimed theater organist, Ron Carter.
Ron is celebrating 21 years of making silent movie magic at Sacred Heart through the annual Silent Movie Night. He performs at theaters throughout the southeast. Sacred Heart is honored to have Ron join us once again!
