Silent Railway Special – in conjunction with Kevin Brownlow -


7th July 10.00 am to 10.00 pm approx. at the Cinema Museum


All aboard for another Kennington Bioscope special! An all-day excursion into the greatest railroadin’ moments of silent cinema. Thrill to the train of events that put movie heroines Ruth Roland, Helen Holmes and Gloria Swanson in peril! Express hilarity with Monty Banks aboard a runaway train, and sneak A Kiss in the Tunnel from 1899! Signal your approval of Jean Arthur in The Block Signal (1926). Climb aboard The Flying Scotsman (1929), in the rare silent version that differs radically from the talkie. Take a round trip with Kevin Brownlow as he pilots The Runaway Express (1926) before conducting us through the making of Abel Gance’s La Roue (1923). Ride along with the Railroad Raiders of ’62 (1911) – a precursor to Buster Keaton’s The General – which will be rolling in from the sidings alongside other shorts, from the Lumière brothers’ famous L'arrivée d'un train en gare de La Ciotat (1896) to a hair-raising journey When the Devil Drives (1907). After that, don’t be afraid of The Ghost Train (1927), the first film adaptation of the famous stage play by a (very) pre-Dad’s Army Arnold Ridley. The booking office is opening soon, so couple up to a season ticket for the whole day!
