The Lost World

" This is a once in a lifetime experience which shouldn’t be missed."

Harry O. Hoyt's The Lost World (1925) screened as part of the Barbican's 'Silent Film & Live Music' series and was presented in partnership with 'Bristol Silents'. Scissor Sister’s musical director and keyboard player John Garden has composed an original score for this unique presentation of a seemingly lost classic - restored from nine separate prints to create its longest running incarnation.

O. Hoyt's adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel The Lost World may have been originally released over 80 years ago, but its story about a prehistoric world hidden beyond the boundaries of mankind's exploration is one which still resonates with audiences today - recently proven by the re-release of Stephen Spielberg's Jurassic Park (1993).
