Silent Films with Live Music! October 28th 2017

Need plans for Halloween?

Abbeydale Picture House is working with Yorkshire Silent Film Festival putting on a night of horror and thrills.

Come down to Abbeydale Picture House to watch our double bill of Battleship Potemkin and The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. The eerie atmosphere combined with these classic films makes for the perfect Halloween night.

Accompanied by live music; an improvised score by Jonny Best (piano) and Trevor Bartlett (percussion), playing throughout the films!

This is a unique experience that is not to be missed!


Battleship Potemkin, 1929

‘If you only ever see one silent, this is the one it should be. A masterpiece.’ (Empire)


The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, 1919


Hypnotist Dr. Caligari uses a somnambulist, Cesare, to commit murders. (IMDB)
“A timeless classic and a visual archetype” (The Guardian)
