Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

An atmosphere of Saturday matinee entertainment runs throughout, with secret passages, spooky suits of armour, and a dastardly villain creeping about the shadowy ancestral Baskerville home and foggy moors. This, the last Sherlock Holmes film of the silent era, has itself been the subject of mystery and intrigue, the nitrate original being stored (some say hidden) in a Polish priests basement for decades. In this enjoyable incarnation Holmes bears some of the hallmarks we have come to expect: arrogance, a deerstalker hat and a disdainful but fond relationship with his Watson.
