This year the film for ‘Platform Reels’ is The Great K&A Train Robbery.

Enjoy hot food and a hot drink before you take your seat at the pop up outdoor cinema on Bo’ness Station platform. Performing live will be John Sweeney on the piano.

The recently-launched Hippodrome Silent Movie Festival programme says “Saddle-up for a thrilling western in the company of the king of cowboys”: Tom Mix. Tom has been hired by the Railroad President to put a stop to a series of train robberies. With his trusty steed Tony the Wonder Horse, our hero goes undercover to bring the criminal gang to justice and unmask the dastardly double-crossing company secretary. Along the way he performs some death-defying, train-top stunts and captures the heart of the beautiful gal Madge! This is a thrill-a-minute cowboy pic starring one of the silent era’s biggest box office draws who made a staggering 291 movies of which only a fraction survive today”.
