Our programme : January to June 2019

Looking at the kitchen sink films, based on books or plays of the 1960s has been a real treat. This next tranche is going to continue with 1960s film but with a tighter focus: location shooting in London and often the more unfamiliar parts. This was in fact kicked off with our last film of this year: The L-Shaped Room.
 
We have moved to two films a month due to popular demand! When there is a Bank Holiday it doesn’t always work out but we may slot in some extras nearer the time. This time I will be sharing the load with my husband, Ian Christie.

Sparrows Can’t Sing (1963)(Joan Littlewood)
 
” … a vivid picture of London’s East End and its larger than life characters – so vivid, that it had to be subtitled for American audiences. When Charlie returns from two years at sea he finds his wife (a terrific performance by Barbara Windsor) has traded in their two up two down for a high rise, and him for a bus driver.” – BFI
