Set sail on a once in a lifetime watery adventure where you can be part of the soundtrack, or bask in the indie electro joys of Croatia’s leading artists Mr Lee & IvaneSky at their first UK show.

A modern soundtrack for a modern silent film – Veit Helmer’s gorgeous Tuvalu ranks alongside the Oscar-winning The Artist as one of the greatest silent films made in recent years. Why choose between a gig or a film when you can have both? No piano solo accompaniment here: silent film is going to get loud.

All attendees can be a part of the score using their mobile phones, with interactive elements cueing you to cheer, stamp, boo and even gargle as hero Anton sets out to save his beloved swimming pool from closure, and win the heart of feisty Eva in this quirky silent fairytale.

This will be only the second time the live soundtrack has been performed in the world, with the world premiere taking place at the 20th Motovun Film Festival in Croatia in July 2017. Previously unreleased in the UK, Tuvalu is a must-see for fans of classic silent films, as well as fans of alternative indie live music think Arcade Fire, British Sea Power, or Sigur Ros.

Everyone can take part with the soundtrack, and you can even star in the show. If you’ve dreamed of performing with a band but don’t play an instrument, now’s your chance. Live Cinema are looking for volunteers to play with Mr Lee and IvaneSky on their improvised instruments made from water bottles. You’ll need to be at the venue for 6.45pm in the evening.
