Empire Of Light (15)

This event has ended

The film is set in 1981 when Britain was facing recession, unemployment and widespread racism. ‘The ‘Empire’ of the title is a (fictional) cinema on the Margate sea front and the set is a real cinema that had fallen into disrepair and was restored to its former magnificence.

It is a powerful and poignant story about human connections and the magic of cinema, and Olivia Coleman gives a marvellous performance as a troubled theatre manager who forms a bond with a much younger employer, the son of Caribbean immigrants.

Starring: Olivia Coleman, Michael Ward, Toby Jones & Colin Firth.

Directed By: Sam Mendes.

Tickets: Standard £7.50 Members £6 Children (Under 18’s) £6
