The Last Laugh, with live piano score

The Last Laugh
| Germany | 1924 | Dir F. W. Murnau | 91 min | Certificate: U |
Starring: Emil Jannings, Maly Delschaft, Max Hiller

With live, improvised piano accompaniment from Costas Fotopoulos.

Introduced by Pamela Hutchinson; Editor of Silent London and Features Production Editor for The Guardian.

The story of an aging doorman who after being fired from his prestigious job at a luxurious hotel, is forced to face the scorn of his friends, neighbours and society.

A film completely absent of dialogue and inter-titles, the story is told entirely through the language of the camera and physical expression. This screening is part of Mimetic Festival 2013; a festival of the very best emerging mime, puppetry and cabaret in the UK.


Plus short film:
The Projectionist, Dir Jamie Thraves.
| UK | 2012 | Dir Jamie Thraves | 9 min |

Written by acclaimed film director Jamie Thraves (winner of the Hitchcock award at the Dinard Film Festival 2011), and loosely based on a story about the only missing or ‘lost’ film of Hitchcock’s 57 films, The Mountain Eagle (1926).


Food and refreshments: Licenced bar serving alcohol, soft drinks and snacks. Sardinian artisan antipasti boxes on sale from Palmavera Fine Foods.

Tickets – £6.50 / £5.50 concessions - senior citizens (age 65 or over), full-time students, unwaged and disabled visitors.
