Live Event: The Blue Bird

Sunday 25th September / 7:30PM @ The Maltings Theatre & Cinema

A magical tale of two poor children, Mytyl and Tyltyl, who are led by the fairy Berylune into various fantastical lands in the search for the blue bird of happiness.

This stunning silent movie, preserved with original tinting, will be accompanied by Carl Heslop, whose Compton Organ was recently found abandoned in Berwickshire and restored to its former glory.

"The Blue Bird sets the standard for one of the most powerful narratives of children's cinema - a quest through a series of tableaux depicting adulthood as a fundamentally disorienting, alienating and, above all, frightening state." - Billy Stevenson - A Film Canon
