Join us at 7pm on Halloween night for a taste of roaring 1920’s London in Camberwell!
Directed by E.A. Dupont, Piccadilly is a story of ambition, desire and jealousy. Nightclub and restaurant owner Valentine Wilmot (Jameson Thomas) is enjoying tremendous success – largely due to his dancing stars Vic (Charles Laughton) and Mabel (Gilda Gray). That success begins to waver when Vic leaves for Hollywood after a heated argument and Valentine is forced to try out a new act, a scullery maid from his own kitchen, Shosho (Anna May Wong).
Piccadilly is notable for qualities not typically associated with British silent films: opulence, passion and a surprisingly direct approach to issues of the day such as racial inequality and class mobility.
Piccadilly will be accompanied by music performed by a live jazz band, piano solo and Camberwell Community Choir. There’ll also be an interval where drinks and popcorn are available and the film runs for 107 minutes in total. It’s rated PG but the film does address period issues of the day and contains mild violence – it may be unsuitable for young children.
After the screening, the jazz band will be playing at a ‘speakeasy’ themed crypt night from 9.30pm/10pm. Tickets are available separately on the door of the crypt or online HERE – you can also find more information in the link below.
Tickets for the film are available on the door and period / Halloween dress is very welcome! For more information about the film and tickets, click HERE.
