At Southampton Film Week, the unique music-accompanied film experiences have been some of our most popular recurring events, showcasing beautiful film in conjunction with live music. This year is no different! SFW 2018 will be showcasing two truly special screenings of iconic films from the silent era with live music by world-class talent.
Silver Street Films presents the 1927 classic silent movie 'It' accompanied by David Gray playing the impressive dual-console Compton Organ! Tickets for this rather unique film experience are on sale now.
Shopgirl Betty Lou has designs on Cyrus Waltham, the handsome owner of the department store where she works. Waltham, though, doesn't even know Betty Lou is around. In hopes of attracting Waltham's attention, she accepts a date with his best friend, Monty, under the condition that they dine at the Ritz, where Waltham also has a dinner date that evening. Her plan works and in no time at all she and Waltham are contemplating marriage. The romance cools when a newspaper reporter mistakenly writes a story depicting Betty Lou as an unwed mother.
Tickets: £12 (£10 concs.) plus booking fee
Venue: O2 Guildhall Southampton, West Marlands Road, Southampton SO14 7LP

Presented by Turner Sims in association with Southampton Film Week.
