We will also be presenting screenings of some of the first films shown at the establishment, including archive material and a range of exhibits.
THE SINGING FOOL (1928) – An Exhibition Event in the Bistro, 5.30pm – 7.15pm

We will be presenting informal screenings of some of the first silent films shown at the theatre in our Bistro Bar.
This was the first “talkie” screened at the Stoll and the vehicle that went on to cement Jolson’s reputation as The World’s Greatest Entertainer.
Archive Footage will be playing in the Bistro and Coffee Lounge throughout the day. (No tickets required)
