Film weekend celebrates Buster Keaton

With his trademark pork pie hat and stoic physical comedy, classic cinema star Buster Keaton gets a weekend celebration all his own at Niles Edison Theater. Buster Keaton Weekend Celebration features 12 hours of Keaton films and shorts, live piano accompaniment, and panel discussion with historians.

The event kicks off Friday night, March 24 with a meet and greet with Busters nephew Harry Keaton, and film historians Martha Jett and Lloyd Williams, followed by a presentation on KeatonÕs early life by Jett.

Attendees will be treated to 15 Keaton films over the weekend including films from the Cottage Grove Historical Society provided by Williams, plus a Buster Keaton Cartoon: Hollywood Steps Out, and a documentary with home movies of Keaton filming The General. See Keatons film debut in The Butcher Boy (1917), and the highly regarded The Cameraman (1928) where, after becoming infatuated with a pretty office worker for MGM Newsreels, Keaton trades in his tintype photographic operation for a movie camera and sets out to impress the girl (and MGM) with his work.

Get a smile and laughs with Sing :-)

Mission Peak Chamber Singers under the direction of Ofer dal Lal invite you to share a chuckle, a few laughs and a big smile with their mid-spring performance entitled
Sing :-). We will be presenting works ranging from the Renaissance to Bernstein, which all share a common theme Ð an inside joke from the composer. A German lothario sings his ardor in broken Italian in Orlando di Lassos Matona, mia cara. A British Admiral describes his path to success in Gilbert and Sullivans When I Was a Lad. The Beatles poke fun at the cold war in their especially timely Back in the U.S.S.R. Ensemble groups from the ranks of the choir will Teach the World to Sing, hope that Nothin Gonna Stumble My Feet, and implore Let It Be Me, plus much more. Oh Ð and dont forget a little baseball and a visit from some pirates!

Performances will be on Saturday, March 25 at Niles Discovery Church in Fremont and on Sunday, March 26 at the First Presbyterian Church Livermore. Please join us for a fun-filled afternoon of music to bring a smile to your face.
Celebration of Life, are also available on the website.
