Regent Street Cinema Presents: The Rules Of The Game
One of the greatest films ever made, in one of the greatest cinemas ever
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 Jean Renoir's masterpiece, The Rules Of The Game. Renoir’s masterpiece on social class in decay was made in the full knowledge that the world was about to plunge into war. A party of elegant and charming people spend a weekend at a country chateau: they are not vindictive or pathological; their ‘sin’ is something much less obviously abnormal. It consists of having no values at all. "There are about a dozen genuine miracles in the history of cinema, and one of them is Jean Renoir's supreme 1939 tragi-comedy The Rules of the Game." – Chicago Tribune "So simple and so labyrinthine, so guileless and so angry, so innocent and so dangerous, that you can't simply watch it, you have to absorb it." – Roger Ebert Certificate: PG. Running time: 1 hour 50 minutes.
"A deeply personal statement of unusual richness and complexity."
