The Lodger – A Story of London Fog - 25th Sep 2018

The Lodger – A Story of London Fog Event ImageThe Lodger – A Story of London Fog Event Image

This electrifying early feature by the master of suspense, Alfred Hitchcock, was largely forgotten, but has recently been stunningly restored by the British Film Institute National Archive. It is not only the first truly “Hitchcockian” film, it can be seen as the film that created the whole thriller genre.
We are excited to welcome back BFI resident pianist Cyrus Gabrysch to play live accompaniment to this brilliantly gripping silent classic.

London is in the grip of fear as a killer, known only as The Avenger, has carried out a string of murders.
Ivor Novello plays a mysterious young man who takes lodging at an anonymous boarding house. His haunted appearance and apparent vulnerability entrance Daisy, the pretty young daughter of the landlady, but she is being courted by Joe, a detective on the trail of the killer and the lodger soon becomes prime suspect.

THE FIG TREE RESTAURANT are offering a Pre-Theatre Menu on the evening of the film. So do make sure you book a table to make the most of your evening at the cinema.
