Silent ReMasters 2012: The General

Inspired by a true incident in 1862 during the American Civil War, Buster Keaton’s patented brand of physical lunacy takes us on a crazed train ride through the conflict as he tries to win the heart of his beloved Annabelle (Marion Mack) and save his equally beloved train. Come celebrate one of the finest silent films ever, local musicians and the 150th anniversary of the Great Locomotive Chase.

This classic silent film will be accompanied by an original score composed and performed by Jarrad Payne.
