A one-off chance to experience the magic of the cinema as it used to be.
Piccadilly (1929) is a silent British classic about 1920s Jazz Age culture, music and dance, London's nightlife, pretence, love, jealousy, betrayal, prejudice, starring Anna May Wong as Shosho, with Gilda Gray & Jameson Thomas. Director: E.A, Dupont. The film was restored and re-released by Milestones Films in 2004 and on DVD in 2005 with the soundtrack composed by Neil Brand.
The accompaniment by Brief Encounter Duo (Chris & Veronica Perrin) is improvised and compiled from open-source music for silent films. Chris's grandfather H.H. Perrin was a professional silent movie accompanist who also played with Frascati's Orchestra in Piccadilly and is very likely to have accompanied this film.
