On Sunday April 5th Portsmouth Film Society presents “The General”, Buster Keaton’s classic 1927 silent movie, with live music accompaniment by Jonathan Eyre at the vintage cinema organ.
Keaton plays Johnnie Gray, an engine driver during the American Civil War. When his beloved locomotive “The General” is hijacked by the enemy with his fiancee aboard, he must do everything in his power to recover both his loves.
