BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Sluberski Film Series presents the Buster Keaton silent comedy classic "Steamboat Bill, Jr.," with organ accompaniment by organist and film historian Ben Model, at Concordia College in Bronxville.
Model is the resident film accompanist at the Museum of Modern Art and at the Library of Congress' Packard Campus Theatre.
In the film, William Canning Jr., following through on a promise to his mother, 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.
A discussion and refreshments will follow the film.
Concordia College is at 171 White Plains Road in Bronxville.
