Beyond Silent! The General with Free Planet Radio

Sunday, July 21, 2024
Before talkies, there was the genesis of film – the silents! Directors Buster Keaton and Clyde Bruckman brought us one of the most iconic silent films of all time – The General. We’ve partnered with Six String Presents to bring this classic film to life with a new score. The General is a 1926 American silent comedy film released by United Artists. It was inspired by the Great Locomotive Chase, a true story of an event that occurred during the American Civil War. The story was adapted from the memoir The Great Locomotive Chase by William Pittenger. The film stars Buster Keaton who co-directed it with Clyde Bruckman. North Carolina’s own Free Planet Radio will perform a live soundtrack during the movie in the first set and will also play a set of their original music after the movie.   Tickets left at Will Call may be picked up beginning one hour prior to the event.
