The de Jong Concert Hall at Brigham Young University will be the setting for "Silent Film Night" Friday (Nov. 22) at 7:30 p.m. featuring Buster Keaton's 1921 feature film "The Navigator" with live organ accompaniment by BYU School of Music faculty member Mike Ohman.
Tickets at $9 for the general public with $3 off with BYU or student ID are available in the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322 or at www.byu.edu/hfac.
"The Navigator," starring Keaton as the wealthy but naive Rollo Treadwayk in love with the sheltered girl across the street, Kathryn McGuire, is a hilarious story of two innocents who get trapped together on an abandoned ship. With no one to help them, the hopeless, helpless couple must learn to fend for themselves.
All proceeds will support BYU's organ maintenance program. For more information, contact Ohman at (801) 422-3149.
