ONE of the greatest silent films in cinematic history is to be shown at Bristol's Watershed.
Adapted from the controversial plays of Frank Wedekind, Pandora's Box stars the legendary Louise Brooks as young temptress Lulu.
The seductive youngster wreaks havoc on the lives of wealthy newspaper editor Dr Shon, his handsome but hapless son Alwa, and the lonely and lovelorn Countess Geschwitz, cinema's first lesbian.
The film has been brought to life by the Royal Ballet Sinfonia, who will be performing the music, composed by Paul Lewis.
Watershed and Bristol Silents have been working to produce the special event over the past two years and the evening will be hosted by Paul McGann.
Pandora's Box is being screened on September 15 at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £20, are available from the Colston Hall box office on 0117 922 3686.
