A screening of the feelgood musical film of the year 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. For this one, get ready for Sing Street. Directed by John Carney, this Sundance favourite and music lover’s dream stars Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones), Jack Raynor and Maria Doyle Kennedy. It tells the story of a young boy growing up in Dublin during the '80s who escapes his strained family life by starting a band and moving to London. Certificate: 12A. Running time: 1 hour 46 minutes.
"Sing Street is the most romantic movie you'll find anywhere these days, brimming over with music, fun and the thrill of first love."
