Regent Street Cinema + Psychology At The Movies Presents: A Beautiful Mind
Watch the Oscar-winning film, then get into the nitty-gritty of it
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. A Beautiful Mind is the biographical Oscar-winner looking at the life of John Forbes Nash Jr, a mathematical genius. He made an astonishing discovery early in his career and stood on the brink of international acclaim but soon found himself on a painful and harrowing journey of self-discovery once he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Following the screening there will be a Q+A with an expert panel fielding your questions on psychological concepts and theories presented by the film, discussing how well they portray the mental condition Nash suffered. This is no doubt an interesting topic for anyone looking for an understanding of film, mental health and how the two combine. Certificate: 12A. Runtime: 2 hours 15 minutes.
