A community cinema group has had a “fantastic” turnout for their showing of the silent film Napoleon.
Screen-next-the-Sea, based in Wells, brought the restored silent film about the early life of the French military leader to audiences outside of London for the first time on Sunday, November 19.
Martin Thompson, from Screen-next-the-Sea, said: “Its gone very well, and we’ve had a fantastic turnout.
“Nearly 100 people have come to see it, which is great, especially for a silent movie.”
He added that experiencing the film was more like watching an opera, and described it as revolutionary.
