Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

The Auteurs se­ries con­tin­ues with The Gen­eral, co­me­dian and film­maker Buster Keaton’s most iconic, and ar­guably great­est, achieve­ment. His 1926 film, set dur­ing the Civil War era, fea­tures nu­mer­ous sight gags and ex­tra­or­di­nary stunts atop a mov­ing train. The re­sults tran­scend lan­guage and cul­tural dif­fer­ences and con­tinue to de­light au­di­ence mem­bers from three to one hun­dred and three. The 11 a.m. Satur­day, June 20, screen­ing is co-pre­sented by the Santa Fe Opera and ac­com­pa­nied by the Buster Pop-Up Choir. Not rated. 67 min­utes. Cen­ter for Con­tem­po­rary Arts.
