THIS AFTERNOON’S FILM : THE INN OF THE SIXTH HAPPINESS (1958 COL 158m U Cert) 

The Inn of the Sixth Happiness is a 1958 DeLuxe Color 20th Century Fox CinemaScope film based on the true story of Gladys Aylward, a tenacious British maid, who became a missionary in China during the tumultuous years leading up to the Second World War. Directed by Mark Robson, who received an Academy Award for Best Director nomination, the film stars Ingrid Bergman as Aylward and Curt Jürgens as her love interest, Colonel Lin Nan, a Chinese officer with a Dutch father.

Robert Donat, who played the mandarin of the town in which Aylward lived, died before the film was released.

The musical score was composed and conducted by Malcolm Arnold. The cinematography was by Freddie Young.

As usual, UGT film buff Chris Leach will take pleasure in giving an upbeat powerpoint presentation before the film, enthusing about the movie and what the star actors and crew did in their careers and lives.  He’ll also point out who to look out for.

As the film is 158 minutes long, there will be a short comfort break inserted around half

Tea and cakes, included in your admission price of just a fiver, will follow after the film.

The cinema is set in traditional and table style, allowing you to take drinks and food in with you to enjoy at leisure throughout the film.

Sunday 4th March 2018 at 2.30pm. Venue and coffee bar open at 2pm.

Tickets: £5 (includes tea/coffee and cakes at half time)
