'Wonder of wonders - a truly fine British picture!' Photoplay, October, 1929

After its sold out screening in 2019, The Lucky Dog Picturehouse is delighted to return this British masterpiece to Wilton's big screen, with an incredible live score performed by pianist Christopher Eldred.  
Hollywood and fashion icon Anna May Wong stars as a very modern woman working in the nightclubs of London. Shot on location, the story follows her dramatic ascent from dishwasher to dancing star, with love triangles, racial discrimination and murder along the way. Travel back in time through 1920s London, as Wong moves between the clubs and glamour of Piccadilly to the pubs and slums of Limehouse.
