When riverboat mogul ‘Steamboat Bill’ calls Bill Jr. (Keaton) home to help with the family business, he discovers to his immense displeasure that his son is dating the daughter of his arch rival in the riverboat business. Set in a painstakingly recreated Southern town – which Keaton spectacularly destroys in the final cyclone sequence – this Romeo-and-Juliet feel- good comedy is peppered with astonishing stunts and effects. This screening will be brought to life by pianist Jonny Best’s fantastic live improvised score.
