South West Silents returns on Saturday 1st September 2018 with a very special day celebrating everything silent film (with music of course). In fact, this is a first for us as we’ve decided to take over the epicentre for everything film related in Bristol… the cultural hub that is 20th Century Flicks!
Over the course of the day we will screen a wide selection of silent films in both of Flicks’ specially made cinema. In the Kino Cinema, we will screen a selection of shorts and documentaries while in the newly built Videodrome Cinema, we will screen a range of feature films.
We won’t be announcing the titles of the films being screened here, you will just have to turn up sometime on the day and see what it is on.
But expect classic names such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Douglas Fairbanks, Lillian Gish, Mary Pickford, Gloria Swanson and also names you might never have heard of. So you will have plenty to choose from over the course of the day between both cinemas. Will be up and running from 12pm until 6:30pm!
We are also planning a special ‘Kino Kids’ section in the early part of the day as well.
There will be plenty to do outside the two cinemas as well; and don’t forget you have the incredible 20th Century Flicks’ catalogue to explore as well! So, for now, spread the word!
