There are epic movies – and there’s Ben-Hur. Sea battles, chariot races, a cast of thousands… you don’t know the meaning of “blockbuster” until you’ve seen this spectacular 1925 silent movie performed with the ultimate in special effects: the full CBSO, and Carl Davis’s sensational live score. Prepare to be astounded, as Maestro Davis himself unleashes the raw power of an orchestra going for broke under the silver screen.

The Live Cinema presentation of Ben-Hur by arrangement with Photoplay Productions and Warner Bros. The Live Cinema presentation of Ben-Hur was originally produced by David Gill and Kevin Brownlow

CBSO+ 6.15pm Director of Photoplay Patrick Stanbury is a driving force in the revival of interest in the lost world of silent cinema.
