Revolutionary scenes in a Southgate church!

A sure sign of Autumn is the now traditional combination of a classic silent film projected in the atmospheric interior of Christ Church Southgate to the accompaniment of live music improvised on the church's organ. This year the event takes place on Saturday 21 October, when Talkies will be marking the centenary of the Russian Revolution by showing the ground-breaking Russian film Battleship Potemkin, directed by Sergei Eisenstein.
