Check It. Cameraman.

There's something charming about grainy silent black-and-white films. Maybe it's the absence of spoken dialog and special effects, the often accompanying piano, or over-the-top makeup, but for some reason I absolutely love silent films.

And the iconic star of the silent era, Buster Keaton, will be appearing on the big screen at UCLA's gorgeous, historic Royce Hall. But not just one little piano will accompany Keaton's "The Cameraman" -- the entire LA Chamber Orchestra will provide the music for the show.

"The Cameraman" is the classic story of guy meets girl and wants to impress her, so he does everything possible to get her to notice him -- accompanied by the entire LA Chamber Orchestra. Exciting!

"The Cameraman" is playing at UCLA's Royce Hall May 23 at 6:30 p.m. Tickets range between $35-$75.
