Captive parking. $12.00. Considering most L.A. parking fees are pretty reasonable, even the Chandler Pavilion UCLA has a lot of nerve charging for that charge for parking off-hours in what is largely an empty lot.Tune-In Festival L.A.: eighth blackbird travel • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

Quotes & Highlights
Buster Keaton was “the greatest of the silent clowns…In films that combined comedy with extraordinary physical risks, Buster Keaton played a brave spirit who took the universe on its own terms, and gave no quarter.” —Roger Ebert
Honorary Chairman Dustin Hoffman will be the opening speaker
The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra in cooperation with the UCLA Film & Television Archive present a rare showing of Buster Keaton’s 1928 classic “Steamboat Bill, Jr.” The orchestra, conducted by Timothy Brock, will perform live accompaniment ot the film.
Also showing, in celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 75th anniversary, will be the first animated Mickey cartoon “Plane Crazy.” It will be presented the way Walt Disney originally conceived it — as a silent film with musical accompaniment.
Honorary Chairman Dustin Hoffman will be the opening speaker.
“Steamboat Bill, Jr.” (1928) is the last of physical comedian Buster Keaton’s (the Great Stone Face) nine independent feature films and one of the last silent comedies. The film – actually co-written, co-produced, and co-directed by actor Keaton (with director Chas. F. Reisner) was derived from a story by Carl Harbaugh, although Keaton only took credit for acting.
The two most amazing sequences: (1) Keaton’s dare-devil, death-defying stunt (Keaton performed his own) when a three-story building facade crashes down on top of him, saving him because the third floor window opening clears his head, and (2) the destructive cyclone sequence.
