San Francisco Silent Film Festival (SFSFF) presents a silent movie blockbuster day at the Castro Club Foot Orchestra. Photo by AnneHamersky.Theatre on Saturday, September 15th. With four programs of favorites from the silent era all accompanied live by the legendary Club Foot Orchestra, this is an event you just can't miss!

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 they compose for. On September 15th, Club Foot provides the live accompaniment for four films in one epic day. The day starts out at 1pm with the sublime Buster Keaton and the mischievous Felix the Cat (Buster + Felix) and then veers into the world of German Expressionism with three masterpieces — The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari at 3:15, Metropolis at 6pm, and Nosferatu at 9:30pm.

Join Club Foot for this musical journey into the genius of silent cinema. Get an all-day pass or buy tickets to individual screenings HERE.
