The General: Buster Keaton | The Sheldon Theatre

Sep 27, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

Experience great films of the silent era as they were meant to be, accompanied live on the Sheldon’s historic Kilgen Theater organ.

Don’t miss the rare opportunity to take a ride through the hilarious world created by the greatest physical comedy performer of all time, Buster Keaton. Organist Tom Erickson brings the Sheldon’s historic Kilgen organ alive, with sound effects, percussion, and pipes.

One of the most revered comedies of the silent era, The General finds hapless Southern railroad engineer Johnny Gray (Buster Keaton) facing off against Union soldiers during the American Civil War. When Johnny’s fiancée, Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack), is accidentally taken away while on a train stolen by Northern forces, Gray pursues the soldiers, using various modes of transportation in comic action scenes that highlight Keaton’s boundless wit and dexterity.
