Book tickets


Enjoy a rolling programme of short dramas, archive footage and comedies made in 1914 and 1915 from 6.45pm, followed at 7.30pm by a screening of Judith of Bethulia (1914; 61 mins) with special live score from pianist Mary O’Connor.


In Judith of Bethulia a religious woman seeks to save her people from destruction by seducing and murdering the enemy leader, but her plans get complicated once she falls for him.


Mary O’Connor studied at Dartington where she majored in performance and studied violin with Oliver Butterworth. Whilst teaching she became increasingly interested in the approach of Jaques Dalcroze which tied together her skills as a musician, contemporary dancer and silent film accompanist. In 2008 Mary started her training as a Dalcroze Eurhythmics teacher with Karin Greenhead, Cyrilla Rowsell and Jacqueline Vann.
