The Great Victorian Moving Picture Show
This spectacularly entertaining compilation is back by popular demand after a sell-out event at the 2018 London Film Festival.
Total runtime 85min
The bold experimenters at the dawn of the moving-picture revolution were quick to explore the possibilities of the medium. The large-format film was one way to astound audiences with the depth and clarity of the images projected onto a massive screen. The BFI National Archive’s restoration of these astonishing 60mm and 68mm films from the Victorian era is presented by the BFI’s Bryony Dixon, with John Sweeney and his Biograph Band – reprising their spectacular sell-out event at the 2018 London Film Festival. Advanced booking highly recommended.
