Hitchcock at the Picture Palace
Alfred Hitchcock described the silent pictures as the purest form of cinema. In this film, historians Henry K Miller and Matthew Sweet whisk you back to 1920s Britain – the era of the picture palace and the creative peak of silent cinema.
This was the decade that saw the young Hitchcock establish himself as an innovative and ambitious filmmaker, honing his craft over the course of ten strikingly confident silent films.
Hitchcock at the Picture Palace is the first of four films specially commissioned by The Space which explore Hitchcock’s directorial debut, The Pleasure Garden (1925).
