Yorkshire Silent Film Festival & HIC
Harold Lloyd in Speedy (U)Buy tickets
Ted Wilde | 1928 | USA | 100 mins | U | Silent film with live music accompaniment
Yorkshire Silent Film Festival is the UK’s largest celebration of live-scored silent film, taking place every May in cinemas, theatres and community venues across the region. This year, the festival visits Hull Truck with three superb screenings, each accompanied with live music.
Harold Lloyd saves the last horse-drawn trolley car from extinction in Speedy, his last silent comedy – and one of his best. An engaging caper shot on location in New York, Speedy shows off the city as it was in 1928, including a beautiful sequence at Coney Island’s Luna Park and a breathtaking finale chase through the streets of Manhattan.
Speedy is showing with a surprise Laurel and Hardy short film and the whole show will be accompanied by live piano and percussion.
