Capital Celluloid 2014 - Day 75: Sun Mar 16

Come On Over (Green, 1920): Barbican Cinema, 4pm


At a special screening to mark St Patrick’s Day, the Barbican present Alfred E Green’s story of the feisty Moyna Killilea (Colleeen Moore), who travels across the sea from Lisdoonvarna to follow her sweetheart (Ralph Graves) to a New York boarding house.

A series of misunderstandings and adventures ensue, featuring high society dames, a formidable landlady, Irish cops and drunken layabouts, all climaxing at a ceilidh. 

With a cast full of lively characters, this riotous comedy Irish gem has not been seen before in UK cinemas.

There will be a live piano accompaniment by John Sweeney
