Here comes the sound of silence, as those who were once Tom and Jerry used to sing. But when you say hello to the darkness it will be to welcome in ‘a major new project of silent film and live music events’, courtesy of the Cornwall Film Festival and The Poly, Falmouth, and the Film Audience Network from the British Film Institute (BFI).
Sit back and enjoy the treat of seeing a classic silent comedy Shoulder Arms (1918) on the big screen with a specially composed accompaniment.
The performance kicks off with Charlie Chaplin’s 1918 short film A Dog’s Life (1918) where we find ‘The Little Tramp’ and his dog companion struggling to survive in the inner city followed by a short introduction to silent film by Falmouth University’s Mark Douglas.
These events will include a very special live performance from local composer and musician Seamas Carey.
Shoulder Arms with live music performance by Seamas Carey will be held on Thursday August 28 at 7.30pm, during the Tall Ships events, at The Poly, 24 Church Street, Falmouth, Cornwall ,TR11 3EG.
