The season offers people of London the chance to see some of the greatest British films ever made, presented by some of the film world’s most influential voices.
London, UK (PRWEB) March 30, 2011
Iain Sinclair, writer of ‘Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire: A Confidential Report’ and the fictional Thatcherite classic ‘Downriver,’ is presenting the fourth screening in Time Out Film Club’s season of great British films, ‘It Always Rains on Sunday’, a gritty post-war drama set in Sinclair’s beloved East London.
Held at Cineworld Haymarket in London on April 12th, Time Out Film Club’s exclusive screening will be hosted by Iain Sinclair, who chose ‘It Always Rains on Sunday’ as one of his top 10 British films in Time Out’s recent 100 Best British Films definitive list.
Sinclair’s nomination of the movie was designed to reflect his ‘close interest in peculiarities of terrain, weather and morbid pathologies.’
‘It Always Rains on Sunday’ is the fourth in Time Out Film Club’s 10 screenings of Time Out’s 100 Best British Films, as recently chosen by 150 film industry experts. These rare cinema screenings are open to the public with tickets costing just £8, less than the price as a regular West End cinema ticket. Each screening features special introductions from leading members of the British cinema world, such as Jonathan Pryce and David Morrissey.
Tim Arthur, Director of Time Out Live, comments: “The season offers people of London the chance to see some of the greatest British films ever made, presented by some of the film world’s most influential voices. A movie aficionado’s dream and the perfect opportunity to catch up on all those films you really should have experienced up there on the big screen where they belong.”
Last month, a panel of film experts including Sam Mendes (Director of American Beauty) and Wes Anderson (Director of Fantastic Mr Fox) selected ‘It Always Rains on Sunday’ as one of the Time Out's 100 Best British Films. The movie is often cited as one of the greatest and most overlooked achievements of British 1940s cinema and has been described as ‘the definitive British noir’ thanks to its brutally-emotional narrative and its ‘kitchen sink’ realistic-style.
Tickets for this very special screening of ‘It Always Rains on Sunday,’ presented by Iain Sinclair, are on sale now, with limited seats still available at timeout.com/filmclub. The complete list of Time Out’s 100 Best British Movies, which can be found on the Time Out website, has been a runaway success, attracting over half a million visitors in the first four days of going live.
