History Film Forum presents: Our Hospitality

December 14, 2023 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

The History Film Forum presents Our Hospitality (1923) as it turns 100 years old.

Come see Buster Keaton’s first masterpiece, the hilarious story of a Romeo who meets his Juliet only to discover a family feud and future in-laws who want him dead. A satirical take on the historic Hatfield-McCoy feud, the film combines high drama, thrilling adventure, and Keaton’s stone-faced slapstick; Leonard Maltin calls it a “sublime silent comedy, one of Buster’s best, with a genuinely hair-raising finale.”

This special screening of the silent film Our Hospitality features the premiere of a new score by composer Andrew Earle Simpson, performed live by the Andrew Simpson Ensemble.
