The Grim Game lands in Leeds

Just a reminder that Houdini's The Grim Game will screen tomorrow, July 3 at 12:40 PM at the Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds as part of the Yorkshire Silent Film Festival. The screening will have live musical accompaniment by Jonathan Best. Tickets can be purchased HERE.

Considered lost for decades, The Grim Game was restored by TCM in 2015. The film is now distributed by Park Circus Films. There is no news yet on a DVD release, so theatrical screenings are currently the only way to see Houdini's best film.

A second screening of The Grim Game will take place at the Showroom Cinema in Sheffield on Wednesday, July 20 at 6:30 PM.
