Don your wireless headphones for three weekends of classic films showing at the Deptford Project next month.
'Silent' cinema works along the same lines as the silent discos that have become popular for late night slots at summer festivals - the audience can hear what's going on through their headphones but observers don't get the amplified noise, only the shrieks, laughter, comments of the people in the audience. Great for holding outdoor screenings/discos when you don't want to piss off local residents. The only difference being that at silent discos it's normally two competing djs broadcasting on two different frequencies, with the dancers choosing the soundtrack they prefer. Hmm, could be useful for foreign films....?!
Showings are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday over three consecutive weekends in September, each with a theme - 80s classics, horror London and cult movies. Some great classics there - the Dame having seen almost all of these first time round!
There will be food and drinks for sale from the Deptford Project (licensed I wonder? can anyone advise?). Tickets are £10 and are available from here.
