The General: Live Foley Experience Almost sold out


A unique, interactive screening of one of the most well-known and most important silent films of all time: this version of The General (Buster Keaton, Clyde Bruckman) has never been screened before. Why this version is unique? Because you are going to produce the sound effects yourselves! In this film, Buster Keaton has two important missions: retrieving a stolen locomotive and saving the love of his life. You will accompany him as he chases the thieves and attempts dangerous stunts in order to stay on top of or near the train. Thrills abound!
