Silent movie night- Buster Keaton- The Navigator- Sat Apr 18 at 7:30Please join us on Saturday evening, April 18, at 7:30 for our next (and final) night of the St. John’s 2015 Silent Film Series.

On screen will be The Navigator (1924, 59 minutes), a comedy starring Buster Keaton. Internationally-acclaimed silent-film accompanist William O’Meara will provide improvised music on the organ. Admission is free. Donations from the evening will be directed toward FaithWorks.

In The Navigator, Buster Keaton portrays Rollo Treadway, a wealthy and pampered young man who suddenly decides to ask his rich neighbour Betsy to marry him. Betsy rejects Rollo’s offer, but the pair wind up alone on a large ship adrift in the Pacific Ocean. Many challenging and funny adventures ensue as the pair must learn to fend for themselves for the first time in their lives.

In 2000, The Navigator was selected by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 funniest American movies ever made. Plan now for a evening of classic film entertainment and great live music.
