SOLD OUT! The BFI presents a screening of Underground
This free screening courtesy of the BFI celebrates the 150th anniversary of the London Underground and the long-awaited DVD / Blu-ray release of their brand new restoration of one of the great British silent features - Anthony Asquith's subterranean tale of love, jealousy, treachery and murder on the oldest underground railway in the world.
Along with Hitchcock, in the late 1920s Asquith was one of the most audacious young talents in British film. Working to his own original screenplay, he brilliantly portrayed the light and dark sides of city life aided by a superb cast and some remarkable cinematic flourishes.
Neil Brand, who composed the new orchestral score for the newly restored version, introduces the film. Come and discover a classic of British silent era cinema (and the popcorn's on us).
Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Third Floor, 113 - 119 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0EB
