ARC Orchestra presents the silent film, The General, starring Buster Keaton
The new score (2018) by Los Angeles composer Jeff Beal (House of Cards; Rome; Big Little Farm) will be performed live by the American River College Orchestra as we project the classic silent film.
British film critic Raymond Durgnat wrote that "The General is the most beautiful [film], with its spare, grey photography, its eye for the racy, lunging lines of the great locomotives, with their prow-like cowcatchers, with its beautifully sustained movement."
And Orson Welles rated it "one of the great films of all times, one of my favorites." Welles further stated, "in fact, I think its THE Civil War movie, nothing ever came near it. Not only for beauty but for the curious feeling of authenticity. It's one hundred times more stunning visually than Gone With The Wind."
If you love classic film, if you love classical music, this is your concert!
Walk-up tickets are still available 1 hour before the concert at the ARC Theater Box office. Cash only.
