Regent Street Cinema Presents: On The Waterfront
Enjoy this Oscar-winning classic in 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 On The Waterfront. Winner of eight Oscars, On The Waterfront features an electric Marlon Brando as washed-up boxer Terry Malloy who ends up getting into trouble with the mob. A pervading classic, this is as awesome now as it was 60 years ago. "It is still possible to feel the power of the film and of Brando and Kazan, who changed American movie acting forever." – Roger Ebert "An uncommonly powerful, exciting and imaginative use of the screen by gifted professionals." – New York Times Certificate: PG. Running time: 1 hour 48 minutes.
"Elia Kazan's seminal American classic."
