Classic Orson Welles thriller
Built in 1848, Regent Street Cinema was the first in the country to show moving pictures. With a recent renovation restoring it to its former grandeur, it has added an old school touch to the capital's movie scene, perfect for catching those classic flicks. It may be older than flared trousers, but Touch Of Evil hasn’t lost its ability to thrill. The 1958 flick is a masterful slice of film-noir set in a Mexican border town. A heady brew of murder, kidnapping and corruption make Orson Welles’ movie one to cherish. "Orson Welles gave one of his most Shakespearean performances as an ageing, corrupt police chief in this remarkable melodrama."– The Guardian "The bravura of the opening sequence of Orson Welles's last Hollywood picture grabs you by the throat." – The Times Certificate: 15.

"A baroque masterpiece – dark, complex, perverse, riveting."
