A stunning silhouette animation from 1926 with live music to accompany. 

Come along for this achingly beautiful silent film, based on the stories from 1001 Arabian Nights and animated in silhouette by the original scissorhand, Lotte Reiniger. Accompanied live on stage by the wonderful Lillian Henley this is the perfect chance to introduce young family members to live music with film.

Recommended age 6+

Adults can only come if they’re bringing a child, and children can only come along if accompanied by an adult. If you’re over 18, we’re afraid being a ‘big kid’ doesn’t count.
