Greatest Hits with Club Foot Orchestra

SEE EVENT DETAILS
San Francisco Silent Film Festival is thrilled to announce a silent movie blockbuster day at the Castro Theatre on Saturday, September 15. Four programs of favorites from the silent era all accompanied by the indefatigable Club Foot Orchestra!

Founded in 1983 by Richard Marriott, Club Foot Orchestra (named after a nightclub in San Francisco's Bayview), was a pioneer in creating modern music for silent film. Their accompaniment is thoughtful and expressive, showing respect and engagement in the images for which they compose. For the September 15 program, Club Foot is running a marathon: Four BIG programs in one day! Starting the day out with the sublime Buster Keaton and the mischievous Felix the Cat (Buster + Felix) and veering into the world of German Expressionism with three masterpieces—The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, Metropolis, and Nosferatu—Club Foot leads the way into a deeper appreciation for the genius of silent cinema.
