We received this message from the distributors of silent comedy documentary The Great Buster:
"Sadly we do have to announce that our release of The Great Buster: A Celebration will now no longer be going forward on Fri 20th March as planned.
Buster Keaton once continued to film with a broken neck on the set of Sherlock, Jr. (1924) and while we strived for his conviction in the endeavour to support the release going ahead, unfortunately, and correctly, we have had to postpone the release in light of current government advice and the closure of cinemas across the country for an unknown period of time. As yet we do not have a new release date for the film.
This is extremely upsetting for us all at Blue Dolphin Films, Screenbound Pictures and our exhibition partners and teams that have been working very hard to get this incredible documentary onto UK screens.
However, we care about the health and safety of the audiences that make the cinema going experience so special and hope that they will be able to support the film when it can eventually be released."
