Love and communism collide in the USA
Take a step into British cinematic history at the Regent Street Cinema. Britain's oldest cinema, it was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures. It kickstarted British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Now, you can catch a special screening of Warren Beatty's epic Reds. Winner of an Academy Award and starring Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton and Gene Hackman, its release was triumphant moment in film history. For those of you unfamiliar with the plot, a radical American journalist becomes involved with the Communist revolution in Russia and hopes to bring its spirit and idealism to the United States. Acclaimed screenwriter and playwright Trevor Griffiths – who turns 80 this year – will be in conversation with Gareth Evans after the ilm, talking about Reds and his life’s work on stage and screen. "As for Beatty, Reds is his bravura turn." – Roger Ebert "Warren Beatty's political epic features superlative performances and speaks to the inner-rebel in each of us." – Cinema Sight Certificate: 15. Runtime: 2 hours 13 minutes.
"Reds is an extremely fine film."
