The best of a witty weekend
Regent Cinema – Britain's oldest cinema – was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures, kickstarting British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Since its reopening in May 2015 the staff have been dedicated to both engaging with the cinemas legacy and ensuring its future for audiences and filmmakers. Tip your toupee and top up on tonic, the mad dogs are on the march and hanky-headed Englishmen tread the boards as Noel Coward takes up residence at the Regent Street Cinema. Known for his comic verse and clipped, staccato smarm, Coward was one of the 20th century's finest humourists. To celebrate "the master's" work and wit, take your pick of his best films. Highlights include: - Brief Encounter - Our Man in Havana - The Italian Job - The Astonished Heart - Blithe Spirit - This Happy Breed - Cavalcade "None of the great figures of the English theatre has been more versatile than he." – The Times "A combination of cheek and chic, pose and poise." – Time Magazine Tickets are subject to availability. This ticket may be used for any of the screenings on Saturday 21st or Sunday 22nd.
