Piano accompaniment is by Costas Fotopoulos.
Part one of the evening which will look at Willis O’Brien’s work and focus on his next film Creation (1931).

Exploding Cinema, Saturday October 6th @ 7pm
Exploding Cinema is London’s longest running film club. Since 1991 they have been showing independent short films in derelict car parks, squats, the back rooms of pubs, deconsecrated churches, railway arches, boats and anywhere else that isn’t a Cinema. The shows are totally open access: anyone can have their film shown as long as it’s under 20 minutes.
For the last few years Exploding have been putting on shows at the Cinema Museum, promoting fresh new shorts and turning the venue into a psychedelic wonderland with their massive collection of old projectors painting the walls with found footage and weird super 8.  For more information on Exploding Cinema, please click here.

Advance tickets are £6 and may be purchased from Billetto, or call 020 7840 2200 to purchase direct from the Museum.

Struggling with career and marital problems, accountant Eric (Brydon) finds that friendship provides solace – and in a surprising form, as an all-male synchronised swimming team comes together. Can their coach Susan (Riley) whip this motley crew into shape, as they train for the world championships in Milan? Will they master ‘the flower’, ‘the pyramid’ and ‘the spinning circle’ in time? More importantly, can Eric win estranged wife Heather (Horrocks) back with the help of his newfound confidence? Shot at locations around south London, this gentle and engaging comedy, directed by Oliver Parker, features a fine British cast, including Kennington Coffee Shop’s Ronan Daly.
