Buster Keaton stars in the 1926 silent comedy film, The General.
He plays the part of a locomotive driver during the American Civil War, who has two loves, his gal (played by Marion Mack) and ‘The General’ – his locomotive. Thrilling adventures ensue when Buster ventures behind enemy lines. He befalls his own ploys on occasion but he comes out tops in the end.
There will be thrills and spills for everyone and to add to the big screen presentation, Donald MacKenzie, organist from London’s Odeon Leicester Square, returns to the City Hall to provide an equally exciting accompaniment to this spectacular silent film on the hall’s magnificent pipe organ
The Hull City Hall holds numerous and varied events ranging from the Classics Orchestral Concert series to pop concerts, comedy, conferences, exhibitions and degree ceremonies.
