Sunday Film – It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World

UGT film matinees are on the first Sunday of each month.

Sunday 2nd July at 2.30pm. Venue and coffee bar open at 2pm.

All tickets are just £5 which includes tea and cake in a break, or after the film.

Cinema set in traditional and table style.  UGT technician Chris Leach – himself a big film buff – will take pleasure in giving a short upbeat powerpoint presentation before the film, detailing why the film is of note and highlighting the career of the lead(s).  And with today’s fun family film filled with an all-star cast, that might be a little longer than usual, and today’s film will have an interval roughly halfway through.


TODAYS FILM IS : IT’S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD (1963 Colour 150m U Cert).

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World is a 1963 American epic comedy film, produced and directed by Stanley Kramer and starring Spencer Tracy with an all-star cast, about the madcap pursuit of $350,000 ($2,738,000 today) in stolen cash by a diverse and colorful group of strangers.

The cast features Edie Adams, Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Buddy Hackett, Ethel Merman, Mickey Rooney, Phil Silvers, Terry-Thomas, and Jonathan Winters.

But the support cast and the cameos are a list of the who’s who of the early 60s Hollywood and those that had gone before.  Look out for Jack Benny, Three Stooges and Jimmy Durante in the course of this rip-roaring much loved comedy.


Tickets: £5.  Includes free refreshments.
