Kicking off Slapstick’s Comedy Horror strand, get ready for a spine-tingling night of laughter and suspense with the pioneering silent comedy-horror The Cat & The Canary (1927).

Surviving relatives gather at a creepy mansion for a will reading, but something sinister lurks in the shadows. Its seminal influence can be seen in the development of the horror genre, making it a significant and historically important work.

Hosting the evening are author/comedian Robin Ince and YouTuber/comedian Alasdair Beckett-King. Maestro Guenter A. Buchwald adds a haunting live piano and violin soundtrack.
Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this cinematic milestone!
Approx event running time 90mins
