"I danced once before in Limehouse but there was trouble, men, knives..."
We are delighted to welcome back the much-loved Lucky Dog Picturehouse for this tinted classic with an evocative live musical accompaniment to transport you back to the Roaring Twenties.
Directed by E.A Dupont and released in 1929, Piccadilly is not only a sumptuous feast for the eyes but also one of the truly great British silent films; mixing ambition with jealousy and desire, to the backdrop of the 1920s London's nightclub scene. Chinese-American actress Anna May Wong stars as the aspiring young girl (and arguably the first femme-fatale) who finds herself propelled from dishwasher to star attraction at Valentine Wilmot's restaurant bar in Piccadilly Circus. This begins a fateful chain of events leading to murder in what became the first ever Film Noir, even before the term was coined.
