Movie Screening: The General starring Buster Keaton

April 16, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

The silent film masterpiece, released in 1926, is based on the events of the Great Locomotive Chase. The General featured onscreen is a replica of the locomotive that is on display at the Museum. The filmmakers requested the use of the historic locomotive, but the owners at the time refused when they learned the movie was a slapstick comedy. Screenings take place at 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m. in the Museum’s General Theater. Regular museum admission rates apply.
