FILM: The Epic of Everest

with live score

Tuesday 23 July 2024

7.30PM • St. George's Guildhall • £12 / Under 25s 50% off (booking fees apply)

The musicians of The Lucky Dog Picturehouse present this centenary screening of one of the first real adventures to be captured on camera.

The Epic of Everest is the official record of the fateful 1924 expedition of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine as they attempted to reach the summit. Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a specially adapted camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance.

This is the very earliest footage of the Himalayas and beautifully captures its untouched landscape in colour (tinted) film, while displaying the comradery of this group of British and Nepalese mountaineers.

With live accompaniment.
