Wednesday 24 July -  A Cottage on Dartmoor (1929) plus shorts
World Premier Live Piano Score
'Out-Hitchcocks Hitchcock'  Raymond Durgnat. When a prisoner escapes over the moors to find the woman he once loved, she does not know if he has come to kill her or ask her forgiveness. One of the very last silent films to be made in Britain before the talkies revolutionized cinema, A Cottage on Dartmoor is a virtuoso piece of filmmaking, a final passionate cry in defense of an art form soon to be obsolete. 

Running time:
 1 hour 50 minutes, including interval 

Friday 26 July - Underground (1928) plus shorts
125 mins (including interval)
With a Live piano score by 
Tom Marlow who returns fresh from the 2023 sold-out performance, with his incredible piano score for this British masterpiece.
London's Underground takes the starring role in this tale of love, jealousy and murder. With its busy corridors, shadowy passages and plunging escalators, Asquith brings a very modern 1920s London to the big screen. Witness this love-letter to our capital city from almost one-hundred years ago.

Running time: 2 hours 5 minutes, including interval
