Regent Street Cinema Presents: Beat Girl
Enjoy the classic remastered 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. For this one, catch the 1960 classic Beat Girl. Remastered from the old negatives, this film focuses on a teenage girl that has trouble warming up to her new stepmother. And, from hanging around with the Beatniks in town, she discovers that ol' stepmom may've led a pretty scandalous life. Certificate: 18. Running time: 1 hour 25 minutes.
