'The Kennington Bioscope Silent Comedy Weekend' - Sat 10th & Sun 11th March in Kennington, London. UK

The Kennginton Bioscope presents another full weekend of (mostly) silent comedies, once again in association with Kevin Brownlow. Key silent comedy names Buster Keaton, Laurel & Hardy and Charlie Chaplin are augmented by the considerable talents of Charley Chase, Beatrice Lillie, Monty Banks and many more.

Our special guest Roy Hudd will be selecting and discussing classic comedy clips with historian Glenn Mitchell. All silent films will have live accompaniment by our highly acclaimed team of musicians. http://www.kenningtonbioscope.com/film-festival/4591676957
