Synopsis

Music & Movies is back with a live performance from Such Sweet Thunder, followed by a screening of a silent era classic, Buster Keaton's Our Hospitality


Such Sweet Thunder are collective featuring a seasoned group of London's foremost musicians. Their musical stylings encompass a variety of styles as virtuosic stride piano collides with stomping distorted guitar to create innovative interpretations of music from the 1910s to 50s and 60s; New Orleans R&B, Tangos, Waltzes, Swing, Jazz and Jive.


''This is an unusual comedy picture, a novelty melange of dramatics, low comedy, laughs and thrills.''


Sole heir Willie McKay (Buster Keaton) journeys by train from New York City to Kentucky to claim his fortune amid a decades-old feud with the Canfield family. En route, he meets and is smitten with young beauty Virginia (Natalie Talmadge), who invites him to dinner, but he realizes too late that she is the only daughter of patriarch Joseph Canfield (Joe Roberts). The rules of hospitality protect McKay from harm in their house, but he must outwit her brothers to resolve the feud.
