If you love silent film and are lucky enough to be able to be in London on 30th November this is the only place to be.
Witnessing Abel Gance’s majestic 1927 silent depicting Napoleon's early years, sequences of which will be shown in the three-screen Polyvision format devised for the film (long-before Cinerama took hold).
The film has not been seen on the London screens since 2004 and on only three occasions in total since Kevin Brownlow’s first restoration screening in November 1980.
The epic film has been added to and tweaked since the last screening this is very much an all-day event, starting at 1.30 pm and finishing at about 9.30 pm with two intervals plus a 100-minute interval at approx 5pm (to eat or load up with caffeine).
The film will be accompanied by the Philharmonia orchestra and, once again, conducted by Carl Davis playing his stunning score.
Tickets start at a very reasonable £11 and can be purchased here http://ticketing.southbankcentre.co.uk/whatson/philharmonia-orchestra-71452
