Regent Street Cinema Presents: American Psycho
Look at that subtle off-white colouring; the tasteful thickness of it...
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. Patrick Bateman works on Wall Street in Mergers and Acquisitions…or is that Murders and Executions? By day a rich and obnoxious yuppie, at night Bateman turns homicidal maniac, taking his feelings of privilege and power to new levels. A stunningly dark piece of satire from Bret Easton Ellis, director Mary Harron and featuring a chillingly dead-eyed Christian Bale. Certificate: 18. Running time: 1 hour 37 minutes. Valid ID required.
"It needs to be seen and appreciated, like a serpent in a glass cage."
