The Lodger

Alfred Hitchcock’s silent movie of 1927 with original music composed and played live by Minima

The Lodger – a story of the London Fog is a silent film directed by Hitchcock in 1927, and is generally acknowledged to be the one where he properly found his “voice”. This is a story of betrayal, obsession, and persecution, all triggered by the arrival of the extraordinary figure of Ivor Novello at an anonymous boarding house in a quiet London backstreet.  Accompanied by Minima’s haunting scores, this is a performance not to be missed!

Formed in 2006, Minima are a Bristol-based four-piece band specialising in live accompaniment to screenings of classic silent films. Their instrumentation includes cello, double bass, guitars, dulcimer, mandolin, synthesizer and drum kit, creating a bold and unique live sound.  “One of the leading bands accompanying silent film in Europe” – Barbican Centre, London.   They were last here in 2022 with the 1922 Nosferatu.
