Buster Keaton Sails into Carrboro, NC
This is a podcast from a recent sold out screening of the 1928 Buster Keaton classic film, "Steamboat Bill, Jr." Carrboro, NC is fortunate to be the home of a monthly film series called "Century Center Cinema". They show silent, classic, foreign and documentaries. They are always wonderful movies and when silent's are shown, the music is improvised on the grand Piano by Erich Lieth.
This podcast features nuggets of good Keaton info by International Buster Keaton Society member Laura Nigro. Also included are scenes from the film and music by Lieth.
Century Center Cinema is a co-production of The Town of Carrboro and www.BeeryMedia.com and is curated by Nic Beery.
