Another special film & live music event @LondonSymphFilm @LPCPA #Beckenham @silentlondon

Join us on Friday 17 November 2017, for a very special film & live music event – a screening of the Michael Powell award-nominated Best British Film at this week’s Edinburgh International Film Festival.

A screening of a brand new silent film, LONDON SYMPHONY, directed by Alex Barrett, with a live performance of its original music score, composed by James McWilliam, by the Covent Garden Sinfonia chamber orchestra (Artistic Director Ben Palmer), in our magnificent theatre, the Bromley Hall (also known as the Performance Hall) – in Beckenham, Kent, South East London.

Our Performance Hall – seats 400+ – wheelchair accessible in stalls and circle via a lift.

Composer of the uplifting and soaring new original score for LONDON SYMPHONY, James McWilliam (above).

 

Performed LIVE by the chamber orchestra of Covent Garden Sinfonia, with Ben Palmer, Artistic Director of CGS (above).

LONDON SYMPHONY (Alex Barrett, UK, 2017, 72 minutes, cert U equivalent)

Date & Time: Friday 17 November 2017 Licensed bar opens 7pm, film programme starts at 7.45pm – on sale to the public now (allocated seating so please book in advance asap). Kentish ice creams and sorbets by Simply Ice Cream.

BOX OFFICE: https://www.TicketSource.co.uk/Filmbox  We pay booking fees

We’ll also be having an after film Q&A with the director, Alex Barrett and possibly some additional creative collaborators from LONDON SYMPHONY.

Director of LONDON SYMPHONY, Alex Barrett (above right)

Venue: FILMBOX Community Cinema, Langley Park Centre for the Performing Arts, South Eden Park Road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 3BP. FREE off-street car parking, but close to Eden Park train station, many bus links.

With this wonderful black-and-white journey through the city of London, director Alex Barrett brings us a gloriously beautiful and enjoyable modern-day variation on the city symphonies of the 1920s urban cinema (such as the 1929 film Man With A Movie Camera). His stunning visuals, combined with James McWilliam’s stirring music, help take the spectator on a poetic journey through London, exploring its rich diversity of culture, architecture and religion. It is a meditative and blissful film that celebrates a vibrant and visually stunning city. Contains flashing images.

Please note: If you think that a black and white silent film isn’t for you, PLEASE reconsider as we’re sure that this will be a rich and life-enhancing experience and a timely reminder for us all of the beauty of London and its communities, through outstanding cinematography and editing (on our fab new professional BIG screen!) and the pleasure and power of live music – so please don’t miss this special event we want to share with you to celebrate FILMBOX’s 5th Birthday year.
