David Bednall returns to improvise Cecil B. DeMille's epic telling of the life and passion of Christ. It was the biggest silent-era blockbuster of its time. The film blended spectacle and reverence, with text taken directly from the Bible and featuring a cast of thousands. The film cost at least $1,265,000 (inflated by press agents to $2,300,000), with sets and crowd scenes rivalling D.W. Griffith’s Intolerance (1916) in scale and ornateness. The King of Kings is the height of cinematic and photographic sophistication in 1920s Hollywood.

This brand new restoration from Lobster Films, Paris, is scanned in 4K direct from the tinted nitrate, as well as surviving two-colour Technicolor footage from UCLA Film & Television Archive, with a few brief shots from other sources. This new restoration also features a digital recreation of the hand-coloured effects from Gustav Brock, which have likewise not been seen since 1927.

When it comes to Cecil B. DeMille’s King of Kings, seeing is believing!

Bristol Cathedral is the only place you can watch a film in this way, since every single organ is unique – you'll listen to stunning live improvisation from a talented musician, whilst watching one of the most moving war films ever to be made.
