Enjoy one of the greatest films ever in Britain's oldest cinemas
Regent Street Cinema is Britain's oldest picturehouse. On 21 February 1896, it became the birthplace of cinema in the UK, when the Lumière brothers used their Cinematographé machine to show the earliest of moving images to a paying audience. Having reopened in May 2015, the staff have been dedicated to engaging with the cinema's groundbreaking legacy, showcasing everything from classic films, internationally acclaimed work and even the odd blockbuster. Now, you can catch a special screening of one of the greatest films ever made: 12 Angry Men. Nailing the court drama 60 years before Making Of A Murderer, 12 Angry Men follows the trial of a Puerto Rican youth that has been accused of stabbing his father to death. Twelve jurors deliberate over his fate. 11 believe he's guilty. One juror is adamant that he isn't. This is an absolute classic. "Not much action, lots of words, great cinema." – Film4 "A strangely realistic thriller." – Time Out Certificate: Universal. Running time: 1 hour 35 minutes.
"The film leaves a tremendous impact."
