We are delighted to present Adam Aceto accompanying the 1928 silent comedy film Steamboat Bill, Jr. Adam Aceto is also a nationally renowned musicologist and conductor who is one of the nation’s premier specialists on the authentic sound of early Broadway music. He has rediscovered and restored nearly 100 American musical stage works spanning 1890 to 1930 with more than 40 complete titles by Victor Herbert alone.
Since 2010, Adam has proudly served as the staff organist at the historic Arlington Theater in Santa Barbara. Award-winning for his film scores, he is the resident organist for the Santa Barbara International Film Festival and extemporaneously accompanies several silent movies each year. He is a registered artist of the American Theatre Organ Society.
Bill Jr. and JJ’s daughter Kitty King take a liking to each other much to the dismay of both of their fathers. When a fierce storm hits River Junction, Bill Jr. is forced to try to save Kitty, her father and his father.
It is believed that the film inspired the title of Walt Disney's Steamboat Willie (1928), which was released six months later and is considered the debut of Mickey Mouse.
Please join us for this marvelous comedy accompanied by Adam Aceto on our Wurlitzer, as it was done when the film debuted. The box office will open at 5PM along with the arrival of our friends from the Antique Automobile Club of America with their beautiful vintage vehicles, and the show will start at 6PM.
