The Kennington Bioscope is a regular cinema event featuring live accompaniment to silent films that takes place at the Cinema Museum.

The Road to Happiness stars Lili Damita and Jack Trevor in the story of a newborn baby girl whose mother leaves her in a carriage. The coachman raises the girl, who grows up to become a dancer and finds both romance and her real father. The 35mm print for this screening will be supplied by the BFI, and the film will be introduced by Michelle Facey. Piano accompaniment is by multiple Gold Silent London Annual Poll Winner and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Horne.
