Get into the festive spirit with some Christmas cinema
Regent Cinema – Britain's oldest cinema – was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures, kickstarting British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Since its reopening in May 2015 the staff have been dedicated to both engaging with the cinemas legacy and ensuring its future, for audiences and filmmakers. They'll be hosting a screening of the Bing Crosby festive classic White Christmas. If you haven't seen it already, the film follows the story of a successful song-and-dance team that become romantically involved with a sister act. The group then have to team up to save the failing inn of their former commanding general. It's a simple storyline, but it's got plenty of depth. "A good musical with a lot of star power." – Daily Telegraph "Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, along with VistaVision, keep the enteratinment going in this fancifully staged production, clicking well." – Variety Certificate: Universal. Runtime: 2 hours.
"To be honest, it couldn't go wrong."
