SKIFFLE band the Dodge Brothers with be joined by acclaimed composer Neil Brand to play along to a screening of 1928 silent movie Beggars of Life at the Regent Centre in Christchurch.

The band, which includes renowned BBC film critic Mark Kermode, became the first to accompany a silent film at Glastonbury Festival in 2014.

Beggars of Life is described as a dark drama exploring hobo life. It stars Richard Arlen as Jim, a wanderer, who comes upon young Nancy (Louise Brooks), who has just killed the guardian who was trying to rape her.

Disguised as a boy, Nancy takes off with Jim and rides the rails to a hobo camp led by Arkansas Snake (Robert Perry).

When Oklahoma Red (Wallace Beery) takes over the camp, he begins to pursue Nancy, but before he can take her from Jim, the detectives show up to arrest her.

The band have previously played along to silent films at The Barbican, The National Film Theatre and the National Media Museum. They will be at the Regent Centre on Sunday 6th October at 7.30pm.

Tickets are £17.50 but we’ve teamed up with Christchurch Regent Centre to give one lucky reader the chance to win a pair of tickets.

Pick up your 13th September edition of the A&T to enter. Competition closes on Friday 20th September.
