15/09 Silent Film with live piano
15 september 2018 20:00 t/m 23:00 - Door: Communication
What do you do when you have no film screen and a limited budget, but want to organise an unique cinema concert experience? You use the sparkling brand new white wall and ask a killer pianist to play the piano. Buster Keaton will do the rest.
On 15 September, Daan van den Hurk (founding father of the Dutch Silent Film Festival) will take you along his musical interpretation of the Silent film ‘Steamboat Bill Jr. (1928)’ in our modest (but darling!) outdoor cinema.
Some call Buster Keaton ‘the greatest actor / director in the history of the movies’. His trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression, earning him the nickname "The Great Stone Face". The film ‘Steamboat Bill Jr.’ (named after an Arthur Collins song) was the last production of Keaton's independent production team and set of gag writers for the American entertainment studio ‘United Artists’.
*Spoiler* The film is known for what might be considered Keaton's most famous film stunt: The facade of an entire house falls on top of Buster who (of course) stands in the perfect spot to fit through the open attic window instead of being flattened!
Because the night is cold and full of terrors, we're moving into the warm and cozy Theatre Auditorium! Now with Grand Piano:) See you there!
