Plus short films and live music by Video Jam
Marking the centenary of her birth, we honour the work of Golden Age actress, inventor and Austro-American Hedy Lamarr. A beautiful, celebrated and sometimes controversial figure, she starred in numerous films with Spencer Tracy, James Stewart and Groucho Marx.
Her most important legacy though still relatively unspoken of, she and friend George Antheil invented an early technique for spread spectrum communications and frequency hopping that became a constituent part of GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. Without Hedy Lamarr, we would not have these technologies.
Set in Liverpool Anglican Cathedral's ornate Lady Chapel, a space decicated to women, we screen one of her early films Experiment Perilous, directed by Jacques Tourneur, together with short films and live music by Video Jam.
Tickets £7 for concessions (students, senior citizens, unwaged). £8 full price.
