London (PRWEB) April 6, 2011
Actor James Fox (‘Sherlock Holmes’, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’) will present the fifth exclusive screening in Time Out Film Club’s season of great British films, a rare double bill of two well-loved, daring 1960s dramas in which he played a starring role, ‘The Servant’ (starring Fox and Dirk Bogarde) and ‘Performance’ (starring Fox and Mick Jagger).
Held at Cineworld Haymarket in London on April 19TH, Time Out Film Club’s exclusive screening will give the public the rare chance to hear James Fox speak about his experiences playing two of the most iconic roles in British cinema. ‘The Servant’ and ‘Performance’ were both selected in Time Out’s recent 100 Best British Films definitive list.
Recently chosen by 150 film industry experts, Time Out’s 100 Best British Films is being celebrated through a season of 10 exclusive screenings. These rare cinema experiences 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, Sally Hawkins 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 ‘The Servant’ and ‘Performance’ as two of Time Out's 100 Best British Films. In ‘The Servant’, Fox plays a wealthy bachelor who gradually and creepily switches roles with his live-in housekeeper. In 'Performance', Fox is an East End gangster who moves in with a tripped-out rocker (Jagger) in Notting Hill.
Tickets for this very special double bill are on sale now, with a limited number of seats still available at timeout.com/filmclub. The complete list of Time Out’s 100 Best British Films which can be found on the Time Out website, has been a runaway success, attracting over three quarters of a million views already.
