The Hollywood Theater in Dormont says
As part of our Silents, Please! program pairing silent films with live music, we are proud to present an afternoon of Buster Keaton short films with live accompaniment by the Thoth Trio.

See a great program of classic short films by the "Great Stone Face" Buster Keaton. Critic Roger Ebert wrote of Keaton's "extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, [when] he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies."

Thoth Trio consists of Ben Opie on saxophones and clarinet, Paul Thompson on bass, and David Throckmorton on drums. Ben has a long history in the Pittsburgh creative music community, with groups such as Water Shed 5tet and Morphic Resonance. Paul and David have a long history together, including several years as the rhythm section for the Maynard Ferguson Bebop Nouveau Big Band.
