“The General” Screening in Spring Valley

The railway preservation community is one that is far-reaching and all-encompassing.  Though we usually focus on the physical artifacts from the history of railroading, it is important to also remember the cultural impact that railroading has on our society.  The Association has learned of a unique opportunity to see one of railroading’s most iconic films: The General starring Buster Keaton.  Our friends at the Theater Organ Society of San Diego are hosting a night of fantastic music, movies, and even vintage automobiles at the Trinity Presbyterian Church in Spring Valley.  The General, a silent film classic in its own right, will be accompanied live on May 7th by renowned theater organist Christian Elliott just as it was performed with the film’s release in 1926.  More information on this unique opportunity is available on the Organ Society’s The General Flier or by emailing tossd.atos@yahoo.com or calling 619-270-7981.  Tickets will go on sale at 6PM on May 7th at the door only.
