Join us on a railroad roller-coaster ride across continents and genres with this double-bill of train-inspired rarities.

First a typically loopy Mack Sennett slapstick starring Perthshire-born Andy Clyde playing opposite Billy Bevan as a pair of hobos aboard a train and on the trail of a stolen ruby. Followed by a boisterous French (!) western in which two friends, driven apart by greed, race each other down the rail-tracks to find a stash of gold.

Take your seat for a station-side view of hi-jinks, hijacked engines, shoot-outs and death-defying stunt-work, accompanied by improvising maestro Jonny Best making his HippFest debut.

This screening is outdoors, under the platform awning. Dress for the weather. Blankets provided.
