THE GENERAL (1926, US, Buster Keaton, 75 minutes, b&w, DVD)—Consistently ranked among the greatest films ever made, Buster Keaton’s The General is so brilliantly conceived and executed that it continues to inspire awe and laughter with every viewing. Rejected by the Confederate army as unfit and taken for a coward by his beloved Annabelle Lee, young Johnnie Gray sets out to single-handedly win the war with the help of his cherished locomotive. What follows is, without exaggeration, probably the most cleverly choreographed comedy ever recorded on celluloid. The Dynamo Café will also offer 2-for-1 beer and wine from 6-9pm on Dyno’Nites, especially designed as a venue for the local community to present their talent and knowledge.
