Regent Street Cinema Presents: Adaptation
Nicolas Cage plays the fictional screenwriter Charlie Kaufman and his twin
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. Charlie Kaufman (Cage) finds himself with writers block when he is hired to adapt The Orchid Thief – a nonfiction book about a fanatical orchid breeder, John Laroche (Cooper). The task, however, brings unexpected rewards.
