Wesley Mission and Australia’s Silent Film Festival presents the very first film version of JM Barrie’s play Peter Pan, created in 1924.
Ingeniously capturing the mysteries and adventures of childhood, James M Barrie’s Peter Pan is a timeless play that became one of the most popular films in the 1920s.
Betty Bronson stars as Peter Pan, the charming and forever-young boy on a journey to Never Never Land, in the memorable adaptation which later inspired other film versions of the story.
With remarkable special effects for a film of its time, alongside an exceptionally talented cast, this silent film is a walk down memory lane for some, and for others, a brand new cinematic experience.
Above all, this spectacular black and white film is enjoyable for the whole family, and offers a wonderful day to be spent together. The film will be brought to life by 2 musical talents, Elizabeth Jigalin and Jane Aubourg, performing during the screening.
