Yorkshire Silent Film Festival

In this rarely-seen Hollywood classic, the great Louise Brooks stars as a train-hopping hobo who disguises herself as a boy and goes on the run. With dramatic American landscapes, a lyrical love story, and a daring, desperate final scene atop a speeding train, this is classic silent film entertainment.

With live musical accompaniment from Jacqui Wicks (voice/ukulele), Seonaid Matheson (violin) and Jonny Best (piano).


Great news for film fans! Our cinema sound system has been upgraded to Dolby Surround 7.1, which enhances audio definition and provides better sound for all seats.
