About the Event
The Electric Film Series returns to the Electric Theater on Tuesday, February 21st at 6 PM (Doors at 5:30 PM) with a special 100th-anniversary screening of a silent gem headlined by the great Buster Keaton;
“Three Ages” (1923)
The Electric Film Series follows up a magical trip back to the Silent Film Era with a 100th-anniversary screening of another historic silent gem. This particular effort happens to be the first feature from silent film icon, Buster Keaton. “Three Ages” sort of functions as a parody of D.W. Griffith’s controversial epic, “Intolerance.” In this comical anthology, Keaton tells of love of and romance over three historical ages; The Stone Age, The Roman Age, and The Modern Age. Experience this masterpiece on the big screen!
Per usual, we at The Electric Film Series aren’t just about the movies themselves. We’re also about film history and context. On hand to talk about Buster Keaton and his feature debut, is NFL Films veteran and former digital film professor, Phil Tuckett. Not only is Tuckett a scholar, a historian, and a fan of the silent film era, but he’s also a filmmaker so expect plenty of insight during what promises to be a magical night at the movies.
Be sure to arrive at the screening a little early and leave an optional donation. This donation will get you a delicious menu item from Riggatti’s to enjoy during the post-screening discussion or, you can feel free to take it home with you following the movie.
On a final note, don’t forget to spread the word about the 2023 Electric Film Series! We have quite the year planned and screenings of this nature are always a grander experience when accompanied by a big, enthusiastic, cinema-loving crowd.
We hope to see you all there!
