Live Musical Accompaniment by Andrew Alden Ensemble!

(1926) dir Buster Keaton, Clyde Bruckman w/Buster Keaton, Marion Mack, Glen Cavender, Jim Farley [84 min; Digital]
The Andrew Alden Ensemble returns with their live score for Buster Keaton’s immortal classic of big screen comedy, THE GENERAL. In an attempt to impress his sweetheart’s father – and to save his beloved locomotive – an engineer embarks on a hilariously desperate journey during the Civil War. Full of the clever physical comedy that Keaton is renowned for, THE GENERAL is, simply put, one of the best silent film comedies of all time.
