Andy Quin – Silent Movie night with live organ and piano accompaniment
Buster Keaton - The General.
After two previous sold-out events we welcome Andy Quin back for another silent film treat. Andy will perform live to silent film classics and amaze us with his skills using the wonderful Keele Chapel organ and Steinway piano.
The General (1926) (dir. Clyde Bruckman, Buster Keaton) – When union spies steal his locomotive (along with his girlfriend), a plucky railway engineer pursues them doggedly across enemy lines. Containing one of the most memorable chase sequences in the history of filmmaking, The General is widely considered to be Keaton’s masterpiece.
