Regent Street CInema Presents: High-Rise
Tom Hiddleston stars as an ordinary man in a high rise gone mad
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 screening, catch Tom Hiddlestone in High-Rise. Laing, a young doctor, joins a community in a luxury building in Thatcher’s England, who exile themselves from society and gradually divide into violent tribes. Certificate: 15. Running time: 1 hour 52 minutes.
"It's the social-surrealist film of the year."
