Dear friends of Crystal Palace Pictures,

What a treat we have for you next. On Thursday 15 November, accordion player extraordinaire, Igor Outkine (as seen in David Cronenberg's 'Eastern Promises' and at regular recitals at the Russian Embassy) will join us to play a live musical accompaniment to the silent classic, Battleship Potemkin. Anyone who experienced Igor's improvised genius when we showed Buster Keaton's The General will know how great this is going to be.

Battleship Potemkin is one of the most famous, most visceral and most influential films of the silent era. Read more about it and see a trailer at our website.

If you only ever see one silent film, this is the one it should be. A masterpiece.” Empire.

See you at the Gipsy Hill Tavern, Thursday 15 November at 7.30pm. Tickets are £5 on the door.

Why not follow us on Twitter or on Facebook?

Cheers,

Mark

One of the best cinematic experiences you can have is coming right here to Crystal Palace this Thursday evening.

Outstanding musician Igor Outkine, regular at the Russian Embassy and featured in David Cronenberg's Eastern Promises, will transport us to the old Russian Empire on board the Battleship Potemkin. One of the most dramatic and influential films of its time, it still very much packs a punch.

If you've never watched a 'silent' because they're too old, too boring, too black and white... then open your mind and experience the pure joy of silent cinema with live music!

See you Thursday night, 7.30pm, at the Gipsy Hill Tavern. Tickets £5.

I hope everyone enjoyed Igor Outkine and Battleship Potemkin as much as I did. What a night!

Don't forget, we're back in a fortnight with The Kid with a Bike. See you then!

We will definitely do more, but not until next season I'm afraid. I wish it wasn't so, but we can barely afford to do one a year, let alone two. But they are so brilliant, we'll definitely keep doing them. I really like the idea of Igor and his wife, who plays a beautiful Gipsy violin, accompanying Nosferatu next Halloween! We'll see. In the mean time, we're showing Brazil on Thursday. Hope to see you there. Mark

Brazil is one of the best films ever made - brilliantly surreal and such great acting.
