Pack a blanket and come join us by the banks of the river for this spectacular open air cinema event set against the towering Calstock rail bridge. Accompanied by a live piano score from Andrew Odber, this classic Buster Keaton comedy about a cantankerous paddle steamer captain and his ineffective son transports us back to the glory days of the Tamar’s leisure cruises.


Please dress for the weather and bring extra layers, as it can get cold on the riverbank at night. In the event of bad weather, the film will be shown in Calstock Village Hall. Please note that wet weather venues have lower capacity so entry will be on a first come, first served basis.

Please note that open air cinema venues are subject to capacity restrictions and entrance without a pre-booked ticket is not guaranteed. Please pre-book your ticket and arrive early to avoid disappointment.
