The Kentucky Theatre in downtown Lexington is giving silent movie buffs the opportunity to experience a Buster Keaton classic the way it was originally intended, with the accompaniment of a concert organist.

Bill Weber, with the Bluegrass chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society says the Kentucky will screen Buster’s Steamboat Bill Jr. this Sunday night with music provided by nationally acclaimed theatre organist John Lauter.  The event will serve as a fundraiser to refurbish the Kentucky’s original 1922 Wurlitzer pipe organ.

Doors open at 6.  Additional information is available on the Kentucky Theatre’s website.
