Don't miss the boat to the start of Children's Film Festival Seattle 2015 it's one of the most beloved family films ever made! Steamboat Bill, Jr., Keaton's most farcical and funny feature, tells the story of an accident-prone and bookish son, who must help his burly, steamboat captain father save his business from a rival tycoon. In the process, Keaton performs mind-bending stunts and thrilling physical comedy.

All ages. Special ticket pricing: $10 Film Forum members/ $12 general admission/ $38 per family of four.
