Battle of the Somme Film Screening

  • 7 October 2016 7:30-8:45pm

This year, Imperial War Museums (IWM) and the Craven and the First World War project are working together to show the UNESCO listed film The Battle of the Somme, to audiences across Craven. Shot and screened in 1916, it was the first feature length documentary about war and changed the way both cinema and film was perceived by the public. In the year of its release around 20 million people, almost half the population of Britain at the time, watched The Battle of the Somme many hoping to see the image of a loved-one, or friend captured on film. One hundred years later, this unique film from IWM’s collection, is being shown to commemorate the anniversary of the Battle of the Somme at Settle Victoria Hall on Friday 7th October at 7.30pm. The film lasts 70 minutes and is free to attend.

To guarantee a seat, advance booking is available through the Settle Victoria Hall website (www.settlevictoriahall.org.uk), or in person on the night. For more information about the screening or about events taking place across Craven to mark the Somme centenary, contact the Craven and the First World War Project Officer, Rob Freeman, on rfreeman@cravendc.gov.uk or 01756 706225.
