The Lucky Dog Picturehouse recreates the early Cinema experience for modern audiences.
We specialise in screening classic silent films with original, era-specific LIVE musical soundtracks composed and performed by some of the UK’s finest young musicians. Since its inception in 2012, The Lucky Dog Picturehouse has performed at the British Film Institute (Southbank), LOCO – the London Comedy Film Festival, Wilton’s Music Hall, London Transport Museum, Stanley Halls, Standon Calling Festival, Hackney Attic and Abney Park’s Outdoor Cinema series.
On our site you will find videos from our performances, meet our musicians and be introduced to some of the most fascinating examples of Silent Cinema.
