Regent Street Cinema Presents: If...
A special screening of one of the greatest British films ever made
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. Malcolm McDowell rejects the straitjacket of boarding school life in If… and starts on a series of anarchic pranks, truancies and outright rebellions against the cruel schoolmasters that culminates in an unforgettable ending. An allegorical rebel cry of the '60s that echoes loud today. Certificate: 15. Running time: 1 hour 51 minutes.
"Punchy, poetic pic that delves into the epic theme of youthful revolt."
