Napoleon: Silent Epic

To celebrate The Allure of Napoleon exhibition, The Bowes Museum & The Witham present the silent epic Napoleon, featuring full scale historical recreations of episodes from Napoleon’s personal and political life, from the French Revolution to the beginning of the First Italian campaign.


Marking a new chapter in the history of one of the world’s greatest films, the re-release of Abel Gance’s Napoleon (originally released in 1927) is the culmination of a project spanning 50 years. Academy Award-winning film historian Kevin Brownlow and the BFI National Archive have completed a new digitally restored version of this cinematic triumph, and audiences can now experience this extraordinary film complete with Carl Davis’s magnificent score.

Bring your film ticket with you when you visit the exhibition and get a free exhibition catalogue (with paid admission to the Museum only, available until 19 March).


Tickets available in person at The Witham box office (01833 631107) or online>
