Dalton and Gayles village Hall is screening "The Epic of Everest" on Saturday 1st February.

The original film was shot in 1924 by Captain John Noel and recorded the tragic Everest expedition of that year in which two of the climbers, George Mallory and Andrew Irvine died.

Filming in brutally harsh conditions with a specially adapted camera, Captain John Noel captured images of breathtaking beauty and considerable historic significance. The film is also among the earliest filmed records of life in Tibet and features sequences at Phari Dzong (Pagri), Shekar Dzong (Xegar) and Rongbuk monastery.

Restoration by the BFI National Archive has transformed the quality of the surviving elements of the film and reintroduced the original coloured tints and tones. Revealed by the restoration, few images in cinema are as epic – or moving – as the final shots of a blood red sunset over the Himalayas. It also features newly commissioned music score by Simon Fisher Turner.

The film is U rated and runs for 88 minutes. Tickets at £5 (under 16s £2.50) on the door. Doors open at 7:00pm, a licenced bar will be available.
