Regent Street Cinema Presents: Cavalcade
A special screening of the 1933 classic, complete with an intro from Simon Callow
Built in 1848, Regent Street Cinema was the first in the country to show moving pictures. With a recent renovation restoring it to its former grandeur, it has added an old school touch to the capital's movie scene, perfect for catching the classic flicks and best new releases. For this event, catch a special screening of the 1933 classic, Cavalcade. The film tells the parallel stories of an upper class English family and their ‘downstairs’ servants between the Boer War and the outbreak of World War One and how they are affected by the historic events between. Based on Noel’s 1931 pageant/play, the film won Oscars for Best Picture, Best Director (Frank Lloyd) and Best Art Direction. A must-have in any movie buff's repertoire. "Almost certain to be near the top of the list for 1933." – Time Magazine "This is the first big film out of the Fox studio since Sheehan's return there and this is a big picture from and on every angle." – Variety Certificate: Universal. Runtime: 1 hour 50 minutes.
"A most affecting and impressive picture."
