Film Orchestrated: Silent Slapsticks

Thu, 2nd Nov 2023

Our Film Orchestrated series is back, and this time, we’re bringing you a captivating programme of comedy silent movies, each accompanied live by a 15-piece orchestra.

This event marks the eagerly awaited second installment of BCO's residency at Brixton's iconic Ritzy cinema, following the fantastic response to our Halloween screening of Dreyer's 'Vampyr' and Disney's 'Skeleton Dance' in 2022.

Get ready for hilarious classic sketches from the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, enhanced by a unique blend of historical soundtracks, live improvisation, and fresh compositions. We’ll also be screening René Clair's masterpiece of early surrealist cinema, ‘Entr'acte’, featuring the original soundtrack by Erik Satie.

And that’s not all! We have a special guest comedian ready to take the stage to compere the evening. Stay tuned for exciting announcements.

Tickets go on sale in October
