Matinee Idol (1928)

It's time to take a step back into cinematic history. Long before Frank Capra made the Christmas classic It's A Wonderful Life, there was Matinee Idol. Made in 1928, it was considered one of Capra's "lost" silents, until it was restored. Catch Kennington Bioscope's screening of it at the Cinema Museum. The film followed Don Wilson, a fictional Broadway star, who escapes his overbearing fans for a day in the country with his producers, where they encounter a so-bad-its-funny theatrical troupe. One of the members is Ginger, played Bessie Love, a big star of the '20s. Few cinema experiences are quite as enjoyable and insightful as this one. Runtime: 60 minutes. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
