Named one of Sight and Sound's 2019 greatest movie of all time, Potemkin is arguably the most influential film in the history of cinema. In the midst of the Russian Revolution of 1905, the crew of the battleship Potemkin mutiny, with dramatic consequences.

Wednesday 12th August
Safety Last! (1923) plus shorts
Piano score by Tom Marlow

Poster boy of the 1920's Harold Lloyd produces one of silent film's most iconic scenes of all time in this story of a sweet country boy working in a department store in the big city. In the age of sky-scrapers a gimmick to drum up sale quickly goes wrong resulting in a vertigo-inducing climb for poor Harold, but will he survive?

Thursday 13th August
Nosferatu (1922) plus shorts
Piano score by Sam Watts

'It haunts us' (Roger Ebert). German director F.W Murnau's 1922 symphony of horrors was the first (unofficial) screen adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula and almost 100 years on it can still chill the blood.
