• With Live Accompaniment on the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ •

The inventive genius of Buster Keaton is in full swing in this beloved classic comedy-action-silent.  Keaton was a mechanical whiz who designed breathtaking stunts and gags.  A master of physical comedy, he did all of his own stunts.  The climactic train chase in The General is not only the high point of the film, but it represents a milestone in filmmaking.  Old Town Music Hall is the ideal place to see The General, with live musical accompaniment on the Might Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ.
