Bob Hope Theater, Steamboat Bill

Explored place of the week: Bob Hope Theater. Normally I don't have preference for silent movies, but this one was different.

Highlight: Steamboat Bill Jr. (in the handout there it was simply listed as Steamboat Bill). It wasn't just the film, it was the music - the fact that a Robert Morton organ had a lot more sounds than what I've expected, and the fact that the music (not the same as the link above) was interpreted for the entire length of the movie (which was around 70 minutes of continuous playing) more than amazed me.

At first I thought this movie was based off of Steamboat Willie. However it was the other way around.
