Regent Street Cinema Presents: Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore

Enjoy an Oscar-winning film at Britain's oldest cinema

"The movie's filled with brilliantly done individual scenes."

- Roger Ebert
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 the Oscar-winning Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. Left with little to nothing after her husband's death, Alice Hyatt and her son head to Monterey, where she hopes to launch a singing career. She encounters an old boyfriend that was better off left forgotten. She encounters someone she might just remember forever. Starring Ellen Burstyn in a role that won her the Best Actress Award at the Oscars, this is a lesser-known gem from Martin Scorsese. "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore is an American comedy of the sort of vitality that dazzles European film critics and we take for granted" – New York Times "This is perhaps Scorsese's most conventional film about the everyday, yet one that is memorable and poignant, due in part to a terrific performance by Ellen Burstyn." – Film4 Regent Street Cinema is Britain's oldest picturehouse.
