To coincide with the 125 year anniversary of Stan Laurel's birth on June 16th, I've teamed up with cinemas across the UK & Ireland to coordinate screenings of classic Laurel and Hardy films. We'll be showing County Hospital followed by Sons Of The Desert.
We'll be launching the screenings in LIVERPOOL on June 1st with VIP guests in attendance.

A Laurel & Hardy revival is well overdue and with the 125th anniversary of Stan Laurel’s birth coming up in June, we feel the time is right to do something special. The last big revival of Laurel and Hardy was back in 1975 when they reached number 2 in the UK charts with ‘Trail Of The Lonesome Pine’, held off from the number one spot by Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Even into the 80’s the BBC regularly showed the Laurel & Hardy classic shorts on BBC2. Since those days, apart from loyal fans from ‘The Sons Of the Desert’, (the international L&H appreciation society) flying the flag, there has been virtually nothing in recent years to introduce younger generations to Laurel & Hardy. The aim of these national screenings is to invite families to come to the cinema… grandparents, mums, dads and the kids. We want to encourage people to put down their ipods, tablets, iphones and laptops for a couple of hours and come along and enjoy good family entertainment in the company of Laurel & Hardy... in a cinema... with a packed audience! The way they were made to be seen.
