(67 min) This classic silent comedy is considered by critics as one of Buster Keaton’s greatest and was ranked #18 by the American Film Institute in their 2007 list of the 100 Best American Movies of All Time.  As a very special treat, acclaimed theatre organist MARK GIFFORD will accompany the film on the Virginia Theatre’s historic 750-pipe Wurlitzler with an original score of his own creation.

2016-2017 NEWS-GAZETTE FILM SERIES
Join us one Saturday each month as we screen the most beloved classic films of all time. Virginia Theatre organist David Schroeder performs on the Virginia’s historic Wurlitzer Pipe Organ at most News- Gazette screenings.  NEW this year: before each 7pm News-Gazette film, take a trip back in time with a short sing-a-long with David at the Wurlitzer and our historic glass slides as your guide! The Virginia Theatre houses one of the largest collections in the country of these unique glass slides, each set printed with the lyrics to a classic tune from days gone by. Warm up your pipes and bring the whole family!
