Regent Street Cinema Presents: Touch Of Evil

Enjoy Orson Welles' last Hollywood feature 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, catch Orson Welles suspenseful Touch Of Evil. In a seedy US-Mexican border town, detective Miguel Vargas (Heston) and his newly wed wife Susie (Leigh) become embroiled in a deadly maelstrom of crime and corruption as Miguel’s investigations into narcotics rings brings him into contact with local law-enforcer Hank Quinlan (Welles). The last feature Welles made in Hollywood and a virtuoso foray into film noir. "The bravura of the opening sequence of Orson Welles's last Hollywood picture grabs you by the throat." – The Times "Clearly the work of a genius." – Empire Magazine Certificate: 12A. Running time: 1 hour 35 minutes.
