Buster Keaton’s THE GENERAL with the Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra!
Celebrating Buster Keaton’s Centennial In Film!
Hop aboard a musical time machine and experience the movies like you’ve never seen them before! The Peacherine Ragtime Orchestra, hailed as “the premier American ragtime ensemble”, will bring tears of laughter to your eyes as you laugh out loud to Buster Keaton’s cinematic masterpiece THE GENERAL (1926). Hailed as one of the greatest silent films ever created, Buster Keaton must save both Love and Locomotive in this thrilling action-comedy set during the Civil War. After the film, Director Andrew Greene and Peacherine play the rollicking rhythms of the early 20th century, featuring favorites by Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, and the creators of America’s first popular music: Ragtime! Fun for the whole family!
Come experience the Gillioz as it was when it opened in 1926!
