Starring Charlie Chaplin, Harold Lloyd, Fatty Arbuckle, Buster Keaton and Laurel & Hardy and including a ‘Felix the Cat’ cartoon.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience these films the way audiences first saw them over 100 years ago and in a venue which first featured the ‘cinematograph’ in 1896.

Please note that the Panopticon is an ongoing conservation project and does not have any heating so please dress warmly.
