Enjoy an awesome stop-motion animation at Britain's oldest cinema
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 breathtaking stop-motion animated film Anomalisa. Another instant classic from the untouchable Charlie Kaufman, Anomalisa tells the story of a man who struggles with his total inability to connect with other people. The critics were crazy about it, and for good reason: quite simply, Anomalisa is incredible. "Anomalisa is a far more human story than most films I've seen with actual humans in them." – Toronto Sun "There's a special place in movie heaven for Charlie Kaufman." – Washington Post Certificate: 15. Running time: 1 hour 30 minutes.
"Anomalisa has more heart, soul and pathos than 99.9 per cent of live-action movies."
