Warner Bros., originally known as Warner Brothers Classics of the Screen, was born in 1923. The Warner brothers consisted of Albert, Harry, Jack and Sam. In the 1920s, the studio released The Jazz Singer, which signalled the start of talking pictures. Since then, the studio diversified into television, video games and animation – Bugs Bunny, anyone? Today, it is one of the big five major American studios. 

Candlelight: 100 Years of Warner Bros. hosts two performances on the night at 6.30pm and 9pm, and each show lasts 65 minutes. Visitors must be eight years old or above, and anyone under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
