The Artist (PG), live in concert

with BBC Symphony Orchestra

A still from The Artist

Ludovic Bource’s Oscar®, BAFTA and Golden Globe-winning soundtrack is brought to life by the BBC Symphony Orchestra in a screening with live music to headline the Saturday night of Sound Unbound.

At the height of his fame, suave silent film star, George Valentin (Jean Dujardin), gives young dancer Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo) her Hollywood break. But sound soon takes over the industry, and while his young protégé adapts to ‘the talkies’, Valentin gets left behind.

The score forming an integral part of the storytelling, this is a rare chance to hear the captivating soundtrack alongside the film on a big screen – and it's free.
