Hackney Attic, Hackney Picturehouse 270 Mare Street, Hackney, London, E8 1HE, United Kingdom
Collecting together 5 of the best silent film shorts ever made by some of the world’s greatest silent stars. Buster Keaton attempts to build his new flat-pack home in the stunt-filled ‘One Week’. You’ll find a love-lorn Charlie Chaplin in ‘The Pawn Shop’. Laurel & Hardy team up for the first time ever in ‘The Lucky Dog’ (featuring a dog to rival Uggie from The Artist). To balance the dog ‘Felix the Cat’ makes a madcap appearance. And the final film might involve a certain “Trip to the Moon”. All of the films will be scored by live keyboard accompaniment. Just as they were supposed to be seen.
Named after the classic Laurel and Hardy film, The Lucky Dog had its inception last year accompanying our silent film nights in London before hitting the town on its own.
Inspired by the music of the great dance bands of the late 20s and the birth of Hollywood, The Lucky Dog brings you the story of Jazz through Ragtime Grizzly Bears, trips to the Orient, prohibition dreaming and swinging favourites. The Lucky Dog brings together some of London's most exciting young musicians - not to be missed! Facebook event page
ABOUT THE CAKEWALK CAFE
A night of vintage jazz upstairs at Passing Clouds every Wednesday.
The Cakewalk Café is a step through life’s looking glass into the gin-soaked dancehalls of the prohibition age. From hot jazz to swing, ragtime to musichall, it’s all here, jumbled up like an old-time jamboree.
Slick back your hair, tug your weskit and don’t forget that the floor is for dancing over.
