OLD HEIDELBERG 16mm d. John Emerson, 1915 + Intro & supporting programme by Chris Bird + Live piano accompaniment by Colin Sell & John Sweeney presented by Kennington Bioscope at The Cinema Museum (13 APR 19:30). 

“OLD HEIDELBERG (1915), directed by John Emerson and starring Dorothy Gish, Wallace Reid, Karl Formes Jr. and Erich von Stroheim. Prince Karl Heinrich (Wallace Reid), heir to the throne of Rutania, is isolated and lonely throughout his childhood and teenage years. The King, his father, denies him the companionship of other children who are considered below his station. His only companion and comfort is his faithful tutor, Dr. Juttner (Karl Formes Jr.).”

“The film is based on an 1899 novel, Karl Heinrich, by Wilheim Meyer-Forster and on theatrical versions of the book. In 1924, a musical version, The Student Prince, was written by Dorothy Donnelly and Sigmund Romberg. Ernst Lubitsch directed a further silent film version in 1926, The Student Prince of Old Heidelberg, with Ramon Navarro and Norma Shearer.”

“Chris Bird will be presenting a 16mm print and supporting programme from his own collection.”

Book now for the next screening event supported by #ReviveTheDark, our audience-backed campaign for distinctive/DIY cinema! Sonic Cinema presents AUSTRIAN SYNAESTHETIC CINEMA at Cafe OTO (06 MAY 20:00).
