Indulge In Stylish Silent Cinema At London Transport Museum

Londonist is proud media partner to London Transport Museum's Transported by Design season.

Head to London Transport Museum after hours in December for a special screening of the 1929 classic silent film, Piccadilly.

A stylish evocation of Jazz Age London, Piccadilly takes its viewers on a heady trip around the city, from opulent West End nightclubs to seedy Limehouse.

When a young Chinese woman working in a kitchen nightclub is offered the chance to become the venue's star act, a plot of betrayal, forbidden love and murder soon unfolds.

Beautifully restored by the BFI, and directed by E. A. Dupont, Piccadilly stars screen goddess Anna May Wong as Shosho, the kitchen maid who rises to become the toast of London.

Piccadilly will be accompanied by a live musical performance by Stephen Horne, one of the UK's leading silent film accompanists.

Piccadilly (1929), is showing on 1 December from 7pm-9pm in London Transport Museum's Cubic Theatre. Doors open at 6.30pm and drinks are available in the Upper Deck cafe bar. Tickets £15 (concession and LTM Friends £12).
