A Variety Show of Classic Cinema


The Cinema Museum has a fascinating programme of regular talks, film screenings, bazaars, exhibitions, and live events, but the autumn season is coming to a close and there are only three events left before the New Year. Check out what tidbits of film history you can uncover.

The Greatest Variety Show Ever
12th December, 7.30pm, 9.35 adult, 7.15 concession

Hollywood is big on hyperbole, but that is probably because they are big on stars. If you were going to attend the greatest variety show ever, who would you pick as your headline acts?

Having scoured the archives, has picked out the cream of the crop and polished all the gems to present the Golden Era of Hollywood performance. From singers such as Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland to comedians like Laurel and Hardy, you'll be whisked through seven decades of entertainment.

An Evening With Mary Peach
14th December, 7.30pm, 9.35 adult, 7.15 concession

Born in 1934, Mary Peach is a British actor who has appeared in films such as A Gathering of Eagles, Disraeli, and even appeared in an episode of Doctor Who. Peach will be appearing at the Cinema Museum to talk about her roles.

French Sundays
15th December, 2.30pm, 9.35 adult, 7.15 concession

The last French Sunday of the season will be a screening of the 1953 comedy, Les Vacances de M. Hulot. Directed by Jacques Tati, the title translates to Mr. Hulot's Holiday. The Hulot character appeared in a number of other films that Tati later made, including Playtime and Traffic. Telling the misadventures of Hulot's seaside vacation, it also makes fun of rigid capitalists and Marxists who don't know the meaning of fun. This will be the film's first UK screening, and will be followed by a talk by Jon Davies.
