90th Anniversary Celebration - Steamboat Bill Jr.


The community is invited to a free silent movie night as we honor and celebrate the Florida Theatre’s beginnings as a grand movie palace, dubbed one of the south’s finest playhouses in a Florida Times-Union newspaper article dated April 8, 1927 – the day the theatre opened.  

In true silent film fashion, Tony Steve, Professor of Percussion and Contemporary Music at Jacksonville University, will be conducting the score to the Steamboat Bill Jr.  Cake and Champagne will be served after the silent movie.

Steamboat Bill Jr. is a 1928 feature-length comedy silent film featuring Buster Keaton. Variety described the film as "a pip of a comedy" and "one of Keaton's best."  Over the years, Steamboat Bill Jr. has become regarded as a masterpiece of its era.  A sequence within the film furnished one of the most memorable images of Keaton’s career - Keaton runs into the shot and stands still on a particular spot. Then, the facade of a two-story building topples forward on top of Keaton. Keaton's character emerged unscathed, thanks to a single open window. The sequence furnished one of the most memorable images of his career.
