TORCH presents: Battleship Potemkin / DriftersPG

Battleship Potemkin / Drifters: A Celebration of the Historic 1929 Screening by the Film Society

The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities presents a special screening that re-creates one of the most significant events in the history of British film—the premiere screening of Sergei Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin and John Grierson’s Drifters by the Film Society on November 10, 1929. The event will be introduced by Professor Emma Widdis (University of Cambridge) and Professor Jo Fox (School of Advanced Study, University of London), both experts in the works of Eisenstein and Grierson.

 

Doors open at 5pm with the programme running between 5.30-8.30pm (including an intermission between the two films). All tickets cost £3.

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
