About Silent Comedy Films

Come see silent movies in the oldest surviving music hall in the world. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience these films the way audiences first saw them over 100 years ago and in a venue which first featured the “cinematograph” in 1896.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Silent Comedy Films are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
