After escaping her violent stepfather, Nancy (Louise Brooks) disguises herself as a boy and goes on the run. She meets a kindly drifter and together they ride the rails through stunning American landscapes. Alternately action-packed and lyrical, and with a nail-biting final scene set atop a speeding train, Beggars of Life is an American classic.

This screening will be accompanied with a live harp score by Elizabeth-Jane Baldry whose performances of Helen of Four Gates and The Lodger were highlights of the festival’s Hebden Bridge programmes in 2016 and 2017.

Performing Live: Elizabeth-Jane Baldry (harp)

Tickets £10, £8 (over 60s), £6 (young people)
Doors open at 4.15pm.
