‘Wings’ (u) [1927] A rare opportunity to see this classic silent film on the big screen, ‘Wings’ features Clara Bow, Richard Arlen and Gary Cooper, and won the first Academy Award for Best Picture.

Here’s a short clip showing some of the awe-inspiring airborne stunts from this incredible silent film:

‘All Quiet on the Western Front’ (PG) [1930] One of the most powerful anti-war films, this realistic and harrowing depiction of war is regarded as one of the greatest American movies of all time.

To give you a taster, here’s a haunting clip from the film:
