The Navigator with an “Our Gang” short
Live Musical Score by GERSH/REED/KNOCHE
Featuring a very special Valentine’s Day themed pre-show movie kissing montage.
A series of missteps on the spoiled voyage of love.
Some of Buster Keaton’s most elaborate stunts are in his love-sick/sea-sick oceanic tale, The Navigator. Keaton’s character Rollo Treadway is a wealthy man whose rejected marriage proposal to neighbor Betsy O’Brien (Kathryn McGuire) doesn’t stop his desire to go on his Hawaiian honeymoon alone. As you can expect, something amiss happens…he boards the wrong boat, Besty’s father’s boat, who is being held captive on board. Betsey also boards and when the two non-lovers meet, the adventure really begins.
Before The Navigator we’ll be screening a silent short featuring everyone’s favorite mischievous children known as The Little Rascals aka Our Gang.
