This is important cinema
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 screening of Suffragette, featuring a triumvirate or female acting prowess comprised of Carey Mulligan, Helena Bonham Carter and Meryl Streep. The film follows the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement – women who were forced underground to pursue a dangerous game of cat and mouse with an increasingly brutal state. Featuring head-turning performances and a moving storyline, this is an excellent depiction of an important story that deserves to be heard. "It's a tremendous, awards-worthy performance from Carey Mulligan." – Time Out "A rousing, relevant slice of feminist history." – Hollywood Reporter Certificate 12A. Runtime: 1 hour 46 minutes.
"Stirring and cleareyed – the best kind of history lesson."
