New Zealand Cinema Concert – The Bush Cinderella (1928)

Join the museum team for a special screening of the 1928 silent film, The Bush Cinderella, with live piano accompaniment by Cameron S. Curd.  Billed as New Zealand’s first big modern drama, The Bush Cinderella had its world premiere at the Strand Theatre in Auckland on Friday August 24, 1928.  Filled with charm, comedy, intrigue and action, it was pioneer filmmaker Rudall Hayward’s last silent film and was dubbed “the most outstanding, in originality and theme and merit of any produced in New Zealand” by critics at the time.  This concert is to coincide with the original opening date of the film (Friday August 24, 1928) but 89 years later.  For more information contact 0800 111 323 or museum@stdc.govt.nz
