Film screening: The Train (1964, 133 min.)
Florence Gould Theater
With the Allied army closing in, German commander and art fanatic Colonel Von Waldheim steals a vast collection of rare French paintings and loads them onto a train bound for Berlin. But when a beloved French patriot is murdered while trying to sabotage the scheme, Labiche (Burt Lancaster), a stalwart member of the Résistance, vows to stop the train at any cost. Inspired by an actual event and highlighted by spectacular stuntwork and visual effects, The Train is “an edge-of-your-seat, thrilling, suspenseful and superior film” (The Motion Picture Guide).
Patriotic music performed on the Legion of Honor’s Skinner Organ, the world’s only indoor/outdoor organ.
