Restoration World Premiere
£10/£8 conc
Stand aside Saorise... it's time to make way for the silent era's answer to the most celebrated and romantic figure in Scottish history: Mary Stuart.
We are delighted to present the world premiere of a new restoration of this extremely rare British feature film, chronicling the Scottish Queen's life. Full of intrigue, betrayal and scandal: her bitter enmity with John Knox, wars with the unruly Scottish nobility, her fatal marriages to Darnley and Bothwell, her captivity, imprisonment and execution at the hands of Queen Elizabeth - all are played out in this ambitious historical costume drama.
This screening will be 'elaborated' with a performance by the internationally acclaimed professional storyteller Andy Cannon providing historical context during reel changeovers.

Dir. Denison Clift | UK | 1923 | U | 2h incl. narration
With: Fay Compton, Gerald Ames

Performing live:
Andy Cannon (narrator/explainer), Wendy Weatherby (cello, voice), Frank McLaughlin (guitar, pipes), David Trouton (piano)
