Royal Albert Hall Launches First Film Festival

London's Royal Albert Hall will host its first ever film festival this autumn, celebrating the magic of the movies and shining a spotlight on some of cinema’s most stunning scores.

Highlights of the festival include a special 60th anniversary screening of Hitchcock's classic The Man Who Knew Too Much; two Film + Live Orchestra extravaganzas (Jurassic Park and Aliens) and a Silent Soundtrack Disco in the Hall's graffiti-covered Loading Bay.

The Festival of Film features 27 events across 10 different spaces in and around the Royal Albert Hall.

As well as film screenings, movie buffs can enjoy jazz and classical concerts with a film connection, a film-themed quiz night (we love a quiz night), and a series of film-based exhibitions, talks and tours.

Look out for an exhibition of vintage film posters; family-friendly events and screenings including Pixar's UP; and a Halloween screening of the 1922 horror masterpiece Nosferatu with live piano accompaniment from Neil Brand.

And comedy fans will love the Comedians Cinema Club's take on Jurassic Park.

The Royal Albert Hall's Festival of Film runs from 27 October until 6 November. Visit to find out more.
