Two of silent cinema’s greatest railway chase movies with live, improvised piano.
The Great Train Robbery is a twelve-minute escapade which wowed audiences in 1903 and still packs a punch over 120 years later.
The General, from 1926, is Buster Keaton’s greatest achievement – both a brilliantly staged Civil War epic and a perfect comedy-thriller. Keaton plays a railroad engineer Johnny Gray, who loves his locomotive, The General.
When it’s stolen by Yankees, he sets out to get it back and epic, action-packed chase ensues. Based on a true story, The General is packed full of beautiful visual comedy, daring stunts, and nail-biting dramatic tension.
This event is a partnership production with Northern Silents.
Northern Silents brings together live music with film, presenting a year-round programme and the annual Northern Silent Film Festival every October.
‘Fusing new music with film to create inspiring events across the North of England’.
