Wurlitza: The Kid + One Week
General booking opens 5pm Tuesday 13th December
We are delighted to welcome back Wurlitza for a live performance and screening of two rare gems, Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid and Buster Keaton’s One Week. Each film soundtrack is an absolute labour of love, taking on average about 2 years to compile. Once planned out and relatively familiar, the band start performing and ironing out what truly works and what doesn’t. The band are often asked how on earth they come up with their soundtracks, and the answer is simply a diverse interest in music and a lot of trial and error.
One Week (25 mins) Buster Keaton and Sybil Seely star as a newly-wedded couple who attempt to build a house from a prefabricated kit, with less than perfect results. This charming and comedic short has allowed Wurlitza to delve into the world of slapstick, and create not only a musical accompaniment but an array of inventive sound effects!
The Kid (60 mins) Starring alongside his child protégé Jackie Coogan, this is an hour-long treat of Charlie Chaplin at his best. This funny yet heart-warming film follows Chaplin’s character as a child almost literally falls into his life.
Tickets £12 / £10 concessions. PAC Friends 10% off (please note membership complimentary tickets are not eligible for this event).
