Kennington Bioscope presents Lady Windermere’s Fan (1925),
Wednesday June 19th @ 7:30pm
The Kennington Bioscope is a regular cinema event featuring live accompaniment to silent films that takes place at the Cinema Museum.
In 1925, three years after Mary Pickford brought German-born Ernst Lubitsch from Berlin to Hollywood, he directed Lady Windermere’s Fan. Based on Oscar Wilde’s 1893 play, it stars the young Ronald Colman in the role of Lord Darlington, with May McAvoy as Lady Windermere. Oscar Wilde’s wit and delightful characterisation is given the Lubitsch Touch in this hectic comedy satirising upper-class society, particularly the hypocrisy of Victorian attitudes to women.
£5. Seats are limited, so please request an invitation using the email
