The NTC-ATOS presents the latest presentation in our 'Silents on the Square' series, Buster Keaton - In His Finer Moments.

The show starts with one of Buster Keaton's classic comedy shorts The Baloonatic, where A hapless amusement park attendant finds his run away balloon ride has left him in a strange predicament.

The show continues with Buster Keaton's first feature film Three Ages.
The rituals of courtship, romantic rivalry and love play out three times as a Man (Buster Keaton) vies with a Villain (Wallace Beery) for the Girl (Margaret Leahy). In the Stone Age, the rivalry is set off by dinosaurs, a turtle used as a Ouija board, and a round of golf with stones. In ancient Rome, the men display their brawn through a chariot race, using dogs instead of horses. In contemporary times, the Man finds himself overcome by modernity, including a very fragile car.

The movie will be enhanced with a musical score in the same manner as when the films were first shown in the early 1900"s by Mr Bill Rowland of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Tickets are $12.00 in advance, or $14.00 at the door for adults, and $5.00 in advance, or $7.00 at the door for children 12 and under. Seniors 65 and over are free (ticket required).

Tickets can be obtained by calling the booking office on (214) 544-4630, or by going to the MPAC ticketing website from the McKinney Performing Arts Center home page.

This project is funded in part by the City of McKinney through the City of McKinney Arts Commission.
