A rare vision of a former world, drenched in hand-tinted colour and laughter.

Popular In the family of entertainers known as The Marvellous Corricks there were eight talented siblings: seven sisters and their brother, Leonard. He was just 14 years old when he started making and screening silent films.

It was 1901 and his early projections – a highlight of his family’s travelling shows filled with sketches and singalongs – would light up the world.

Paying homage to The Marvellous Corricks’ musical talents, renowned Tasmanian composer and performer Dean Stevenson and his band accompany these moving pictures with a playful new musical soundscape.

Bring your family and welcome Leonard’s Beautiful Pictures into the 21st century.
