Piccadilly (PG)

One of the pinnacles of British silent cinema, Piccadilly is a sumptuous showbiz melodrama seething with sexual and racial tension. The Chinese-American screen goddess Anna May Wong stars as Shosho, a scullery maid in a fashionable London nightclub whose sensuous tabletop dance catches the eye of suave club owner Valentine Wilmot. She rises to become the toast of London and the object of his erotic obsession - to the bitter jealousy of Mabel, his former lover and star dancer (played by Ziegfeld Follies star Gilda Gray).


The film will be accompanied by a live soundtrack, performed by Donald MacKenzie on our original 1936 Compton cinema organ


"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
