MIDNIGHT MOLLY 35mm + THE PRIMROSE PATH d. Lloyd Ingraham, 1925 + Harry O. Hoyt, 1925 + Intro by Michelle Facey & Live piano accompaniment by Meg Morley & Costas Fotopolous presented by Kennington Bioscope at The Cinema Museum (23 MAR 19:30).

“This double bill, with both films hailing from 1925, makes for an evening of crime and high drama, down Kennington way, featuring two fabulous leading ladies. The programme will be introduced by Michelle Facey, and live piano accompaniment comes from Meg Morley for THE PRIMROSE PATH and Costas Fotopolous for MIDNIGHT MOLLY.” (Kennington Bioscope)
