Kennington Bioscope Presents Silent Laughter Saturday

Sat 11 Nov 2017 @ 10:00 · Events

The Kid BrotherThis second Silent Laughter Saturday will include classic comedies from the USA, Great Britain and continental Europe.

Subject to confirmation, we hope to present Max Linder’s rare 1919 French feature Le Petit Café. Author and film-maker Kevin Brownlow will introduce one of Harold Lloyd’s personal favourites among his feature-length films, The Kid Brother (1927).

Alice HowellVisiting from the USA will be author and historian Anthony Slide, giving a talk – with clips – about the brilliant but sadly neglected comedienne Alice Howell. Anthony Slide has recently written the first full-length biography of Alice Howell and copies will be available to buy (and have signed!) on the day.

Doors open at 9.30, for a 10.00 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.


Ticketing details to be confirmed.
