Regent Street Cinema Presents: No
Enjoy an awesome film 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. Now, you can catch a special screening of No. Set in 1988, No tells the story of a young ad exec – masterfully played by the inimitable Gael Garcia Bernal – who leads up the opposition party to free Chile from the clutches of military dictator Augusto Pinochet. Smart and funny in equal measure, this is a nuanced insight into an important story. "García Bernal quietly carries this film as a soft-spoken kid in blue jeans and untucked shirt." – Chicago Sun-Times "A resounding yes." – Little White Lies Certificate: 15. Running time: 1 hour 57 minutes.
"Say yes to No."
