The landmark Ealing Comedy
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. In this classic British comedy, Scottish islanders try to plunder 50,000 cases of whisky from a stranded ship. Certificate: U. Runtime: 1 hours 22 minutes. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted.
"Beguiling, subversive and a complete joy."
