Kennington Bioscope presents; Silent Laughter Saturday, Nov 11th @ 10am
This second Silent Laughter Saturday will include classic comedies from the USA, Great Britain and continental Europe.

Author and film-maker Kevin Brownlow will introduce one of Harold Lloyd’s personal favourites among his feature-length films, The Kid Brother (1927).Visiting from the USA will be author and historian Anthony Slide, giving a talk – with clips – about the brilliant but sadly neglected comedienne Alice Howell. Anthony Slide has recently written the first full-length biography of Alice Howell and copies will be available to buy (and have signed!) on the day.
Ticketing details to be confirmed.
Kennington Noir presents; Criss Cross (1949) Thurs Nov 16th @ 7:30pm
Kennington Noir presents Criss Cross (1949), directed by Robert Siodmak and starring Burt Lancaster, Yvonne De Carlo and Dan Duryea.
Reuniting with director Siodmak after their success with The Killers (1946), Burt Lancaster plays Steve Thompson, a man who seals his dark fate when he returns to Los Angeles to find his ex-wife Anna Dundee (Yvonne DeCarlo) eager to rekindle their love, against all better judgment. She encourages their affair, but then quickly marries mobster Slim Dundee (Dan Duryea). To deflect suspicion of the affair, Thompson leads Dundee into a daylight armored-truck robbery, only to double-cross him when the crime is pulled off.
“Robert Siodmak directs this cynical film noir of obsessive love and betrayal. It’s 1940s film noir at its most influential as far as style goes, further enhanced by the beautiful dark photography of Frank Planer, the tight script by Daniel Fuchs, and the taut pacing by Siodmak.” (Dennis Schwartz, Ozus Movie Reviews, October 2004).
With supporting programme and an introduction from Kulraj Phullar from Kings College London.
Advance tickets are £6 - click below to purchase from Billetto or call 020 7840 2200 during office purchase direct from the Museum.
