Regent Street Cinema Presents: Sing Street Preview
See Sing Street before anyone else
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. Directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again), this Sundance favourite and music lover’s dream stars Aidan Gillan, 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. Not released until April 22, this is your chance to see the film before anyone else. Certificate: 12A. Running time: 1 hour 46 minutes.
"Carney understands how music not only provides a soundtrack for a life, but can change a life, too."
