Seniors’ Free Matinee: Underground
This 1920s silent thriller sees a love-triangle play out in the London underground.
Dir Anthony Asquith
With Brian Aherne, Elissa Landi, Norah Baring, Cyril McLaglen
With Neil Brand score
This silent thriller from one of the UK’s most ambitious directors of the 1920s is also an intriguing portrait of London at this time. Revolving around the love lives of two couples, the story takes place on the bustling underground and in the capital’s parks, double-decker buses, pubs and shabby bedsits. The Lots Road power station not only powers the tube but provides a dramatic location for a thrilling climax.
