For the January edition of WYCE at Wealthy, we present "Buster In Blue", a screening of the classic Buster Keaton silent film "The General", accompanied LIVE by an original score from local band Blue Dahlia.

Blue Dahlia will create music for the film that will transport you into the story, steaming along with a groove inspired by The Meters, Edgar Allen Poe, traditional Irish and American tunes, coupled with tango, bluegrass and rock ‘n’ roll. The show begins at 6:30 PM on Wednesday, January 14th. Tickets are $4 in advance, $8 the day of the show and are available by visiting or the Wealthy Theatre Box Office.
