Northeast Catholic College in Warner will host a screening of the classic Buster Keaton comedy The Cameraman.

Released in 1928, The Cameraman is a black-and-white silent film.

At the college’s showing Saturday at 7 p.m., Jeff Rapsis will perform live music on his keyboard.

The Cameraman tells the story of a young man (Keaton) who tries to impress the girl of his dreams (Marceline Day) by working as a freelance newsreel cameraman. His efforts result in spectacular failure, but then a lucky break gives him an unexpected chance to make his mark.

The short film Cops, also by Keaton, will be shown, too.

“These films were created to be shown on the big screen as a sort of communal experience,” Rapsis said. “With an audience and live music, they still come to life in the way their makers intended them to.”

Admission is free for Northeast Catholic College students and $5 for the public.
