Evangeline With Piano Accompaniment

You'll be lost for words

"The Bioscope is cinephilia at its best – if you’ve been, you’ll know what I mean. If you haven’t been, you are missing out."

- Guardian
Have you ever watched a home video tape and got that peculiar feeling that comes with seeing something that, on one hand, seems a whole world away, yet still feels so close at the same time? Now imagine how it feels to watch a video from 1929. In this event by Kennington Bioscopy, Evangeline – a rediscovered gem from the silent era – is to be projected on 16mm complete with a live piano accompaniment. Held at the Cinema Museum, where Charlie Chaplin lived for a period of his life, the film is an adaptation of a Henry Wadsworth Longfellow poem. Simultaneously connecting and distancing us from the past, it's a cinema experience unlike any other. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
