MAKE MORE NOISE! SUFFRAGETTES IN SILENT FILM + Q&A with Helen Pankhurst at ArtHouse Crouch End (27 MAY 16:00):

  • A boisterous archive anthology showing how the Suffragettes were portrayed on the cinema screen, at the same time as their battles were still raging on the streets outside.

VIRTUE at The Cinema Museum (27 MAY 14:30):

  • Directed by Edward Buzzell, this 1932 comedy-drama follows the romance of a New York streetwalker (Carole Lombard) and a cab driver (Pat O’Brien), who has a dislike for women. Genuinely warm chemistry between the two stars and snappy pre-Code patter spark this likeable film. Presented by Kennington Talkies with full supporting programme.

THE WIND RISES at The Prince Charles (27 MAY 15:35):
