Silent Film: Steamboat Bill, Jr.

  • The Newtown Theatre

Join us for a special screening of the 1928 silent classic, Steamboat Bill, Jr., featuring a live piano score by a professional film accompanist.

Tickets will be available at the door for $10. Doors open at 6:30 PM and the show starts at 7:00 PM on Sunday, June 4.

Prior to the mid-1920s, all movies were silent and dialogue was transmitted through mute gesture, mime and title cards, which contained a written indication of the plot or key dialogue. For added effect, silent films were commonly accompanied by musicians – often pianists – who provided a live score in the movie house. The Newtown Theatre, which showed its first film in 1906, was one of these places.

This movie is part of the theatre’s 2017 Silent Film Series, which is supported by Newtown attorney Alice Hart Hughes, Esq.
