Capital Celluloid 2012 - Day 194: Fri July 13

The Ring (Hitchcock, 1927): Hackney Empire, 8pm 

Here is the BFI introduction to the event: Alfred Hitchcock's love-triangle melodrama is a wonderful evocation of London in the 1920s, following boxer Jack from his fairground roots to the Albert Hall, and an epic fight with his Australian love-rival, Bob. Based on an original Hitchcock screenplay, The Ring's taut pacing and expressionist flourishes pack a real punch, marking it as a worthy precursor to Scorsese's Raging Bull. Presented with the world premiere of a jazz score by Soweto Kinch, performed live by the Soweto Kinch Band.

If you can't make the event there is live streaming of the film via this link.
