In 1927, silent movie actor Valentin is a huge star – adored by fans and ever-accompanied by his trusty performing dog Jack. When he meets the young, beautiful Peppy Miller romance blooms – but while her career takes off in the new era of talkies, Valentin becomes something of a relic of movie history.
Once you’ve seen this wonderful romantic comedy drama, you’ll understand why it’s won 5 Academy Awards (including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor) 3 Golden Globes, 7 BAFTAs and the Best Actor Award at Cannes. If you haven’t, we’ll see you at the screening!
