Buster Keaton’s silent comic masterpiece never fails to get an audience laughing from the beginning and applauding by the end. To help recreate a 1920s night at the movies, the film will be accompanied by live music and every attendee will receive a vintage-style souvenir program. For added pleasure, they will screen a vintage film print on a “reel” movie projector. Plus: Popcorn, home-made desserts, coffee, tea, beer etc.
The guest speaker is Oscar-nominated Gerald Potterton who directed Buster Keaton in The Railrodder (1966). He also worked on Yellow Submarine (1968) and directed the animated cult film Heavy Metal (1980). Also on display will be Potterton’s impressive recent oil paintings.
