The Great Victorian Moving Picture Show

For one night only, Victorian cinema comes to Bradford! Enjoy an unmissable selection of early short films on the big screen, plus live musical accompaniment.

For the first time outside London, this special event will showcase a selection of some of the earliest moving pictures. Be astounded by the sheer clarity, scale and spectacle of these incredibly rare surviving fragments of Britain’s first films.

The presentation will also feature commentary from Bryony Dixon, curator for silent film at the BFI National Archive, and live musical accompaniment from composer John Sweeney.

£10.50; limited free tickets available for under-25s.
