Cabin Fever: Buster Keaton’s Classic Shorts

There will be will be free stop motion animation workshop offered by Art City one hour prior to the film.

Buster Keaton has emerged as one of the era’s most admired and respected artists. Behind the deadpan expression and trademark porkpie hat was a filmmaking comic genius who conceived and engineered some of the most breathtaking stunts and feats of visual trickery.

The Boat

Buster loads the wife and kids into their homemade boat, and spend their time on the high seas ducking bridges, battling storms, and defying gravity.

Animator Papa Mbao shows the celebration of couple on a night out in the town using actual clothing, hand drawn and stop motion animation, and photos.


What started as a dream in 2005 has blossomed into a rite of passage for parents and their kids. They can shake the snow off their boots and spend an afternoon at the movies every Sunday all through January and February thanks to the generous support of the Assiniboine Credit Union. Due to the popularity of this series it is our desire that parents and their kids be seated before all others. Thanks for your understanding.

We acknowledge the continued and generous support of the Assiniboine Credit Union.

Re: One Week:
There are no stunt doubles, camera tricks, or fancy prop gadgets. One of Keaton's best shorts. There's an abundance of truly classic American comedy here
