Ben Hur

Ben Hur

Yorkshire Silent Film Festival presents Ben Hur

Directed by Fred Niblo.

The most epic silent film of them all, Ben Hur is a gripping tale of love and revenge. At its premiere in 1925 nothing like it had ever been seen before. The dazzling special effects, thrilling action, glorious technicolour sequences and a cast of thousands helped Ben Hur make MGM’s reputation as the blockbuster studio. The famous chariot race is jaw-dropping even today - captured by forty two cameras, with hundreds of horses and thousands of extras, the sequence was recreated almost shot-by-shot for the 1959 remake with Charlton Heston.

Performing live: Jonathan Best (piano) & Trevor Bartlett (percussion)

Tickets for ben Hur on 7 May will go off sale via SIV Tickets at 12noon Sunday. Tickets will be available at the venue on Sunday from 2pm. Cash sales only.
