FREE screenings of classic Laurel and Hardy movies are to be held at Clevedon's Curzon Cinema.
Enjoy some Laurel and Hardy classics at the next open weekend at The Curzon.
The short films will be shown as part of an open weekend at the picture house on Saturday and Sunday, March 16-17.
The Curzon's collection of heritage cinema technology will be open and some vintage projectors will be in operation..
Highlight of the weekend's programme is a pair of short films starring Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy.
The silent Do Detectives Think dates from 1927, and sees the duo hired to protect a judge from an escaped convict who is out for revenge. In the 1931 sound film Beau Chumps, Oliver is jilted by his girlfriend and joins the Foreign Legion to forget, taking Stanley with him.
The programme also includes a British Movietone Newsreel from 1943, and a clip of the Count Basie Orchestra.
The films will be screening in the mini cinema both days from noon-1.30pm.
The Curzon Collection will be open from 11am and entry is free.
