Greatest Hits with Clubfoot Orchestra, 2018

September 15, 2018 at the Castro Theatre


The Club Foot Orchestra is a San Francisco treasure! Founded in 1983 by Richard Marriott, Club Foot was known around town for their dramatic, complex music when they started creating scores for classic silent movies. Pioneers of modern music for silent film, Club Foot reconvened at the Castro Theatre on September 15, 2018 for an entire day of accompanying silent-era masterpieces—a dazzling marathon achievement!
