Oliver Twist- Accompanied Silent Film Screening with Jonny Best

by The Leeds Library


Leeds Lit Fest presents

As a new edition to the Lit Fest programme, The Leeds Library will be hosting a silent film screening of Oliver Twist and another short film. This rare screening will have live piano accompaniment by Jonny Best.

The novels of Charles Dickens were popular sources for film makers in the silent era, and this version of Oliver Twist is a gem. Starring Jackie Coogan (fresh from his success the year before in Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid) and the great Lon Chaney (Phantom of the Opera, Hunchback of Notre Dame), Dickens’ much-loved tale is brought to vivid life in this hit from 1922.

Tickets are £8, or £6 if you are a Leeds Library Member. Please show your card on the day.
