THE GREAT BUSTER: A CELEBRATION w/Special Guest*
“No matter that Keaton’s best work is nearly a century old; it always had and still has a more modern edge to it than that of any of his contemporaries..” – The Hollywood Reporter
From director Peter Bogdanovich comes this loving and informative tribute to Buster Keaton, one of the cinema’s great innovators. Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, and Dick Van Dyke are among those interviewed who knew Keaton, worked with him, or were influenced by him, yet “The footage assembled here is simply remarkable and Bogdanovich lets that speak for itself” – CitizenDamePod.com. Not Rated. 102 minutes.
Wednesday, November 7 at 4pm and 7pm
Friday, November 9 at 3pm, 5:15pm and 7:30pm
NOTE: Following the 7:30pm screening on November 9th, film historian – and Keaton family friend – Carol Bradshaw will lead an informal conversation about Keaton and his life. Ms. Bradshaw is actually a historian in all things related to theatre and film from the Industrial Revolution to the Sexual Revolution, having interviewed many of the legends of the 20th century, as well as performing and directing their routines and songs on stages throughout the United States and Europe.
