Silent Film Festival 2017

Internationally renowned pianist Gerhard Gruber is coming all the way from Austria again for our biggest program of Silent Films yet!

Gerhard will play live accompaniment to a selection of Silent classics from around the world, including Harold Lloyd masterpiece The Kid Brother, sci-fi pioneer Metropolis and Australian family fun in The Kid Stakes.

In celebration of the Hobart Town Hall Sesquicentenary, our Closing Night session will take place in the ballroom there which was home to early moving picture screenings before Hobart got its first purpose-built facilities (such as the State).

Screening from the 23rd – 26th February, seats are strictly limited (there’s only piano and one pianist!) so make sure you book early to avoid disappointment – click on the session time below for tickets.
