Columbia River Theatre Organ Society presents an afternoon of silent film with live organ!

OUR HOSPITALITY (1923, 75 min): Buster Keaton stars as youthful dreamer Willie McKay, who travels westward on a rickety locomotive to claim his birthright, only to find that his inheritance is a shack and that the object of his affection (Keaton’s real-life wife, Natalie Talmadge) is the daughter of a man with whom his family has been engaged in a long, violent feud. McKay’s personal struggles are punctuated by brilliant slapstick set pieces that involve an exploding dam, raging waterfalls, and a primitive steam engine.

PERILS OF PAULINE (1914, 36 min): Episode #1, featuring Pearl White.
PERPETUAL MOTION (1920, 5 min): Max Fleischer Out of the Inkwell Cartoon.

Dean Lemire provides an original musical score on the Beverly Ruth Nelson Memorial Organ.
