"Anyone who considers this entertainment should be placed in the pathological ward in some hospital" said one contemporary review of this notorious film.

The initial outrage over the use of people with genuine abnormalities overshadowed the film's real sympathies; if there are 'freaks' on display here, they are not the versatile circus performers to whom the title seems to allude.

This tale of a 'beautiful' circus trapeze artist who conspires with her strongman lover to marry a dwarf for his money remain's Hollywood's boldest statement on the dichotomy between outer appearance and inner life.

This event will be preceded by an introduction by Gareth Miles. 

Doors will open at 6:30 PM.
