Great evening - orchestra and movie - a winning combination. AAnd thank you Kennedy Center for giving the Goldstar subscribers good seats for this event - not like other venues!

More Information


Filled with hilarious sight gags and perfectly timed stunt work, Buster Keaton’s The General (1927) is an imaginative masterpiece of dead-pan comedy. This story of a brave but foolish Confederate train engineer doggedly pursuing his beloved locomotive (“The General”) and the woman he loves is generally regarded as one of the greatest of all silent comedies. Watch the entire classic silent film with the score performed live by the NSO and acclaimed organist Dennis James.
