Unavailable on DVD

This collection showcases a selection of hard-to-see features that are unavailable to watch anywhere else (legally) in the UK.

The films range from The Private Life of Don Juan (1934), Douglas Fairbanks last ever screen performance, to a prescient slice of speculative sci-fi with The Tunnel (1936) and some beguiling examples of early silent cinema. We hope this collection will introduce new audiences of all ages to these valuable films.
