"Piccadilly, restored to its original glory, was a genuine revelation to me. It's a bold, beautifully crafted, completely modern picture... One of the truly great films of the silent era" – Martin Scorsese.
One of the pinnacles of British silent cinema, Piccadilly is a sumptuous showbiz melodrama seething with sexual and racial tension starring Anna May Wong as a scullery maid and dancer who rises to become the toast of London.
We are very excited to welcome acclaimed musician Stephen Horne back to Phoenix to accompany the film live, introduced by Laraine Porter.
Internationally considered one of the leading silent film accompanists, Stephen was the house pianist at BFI Southbank for over thirty years, has played at all the major UK venues and recorded music for many DVD and online releases of silent films.
