Somewhere between film noir and black comedy, this film was originally banned in New York State for its portrayal of illicit love, vice and murder. Decided for yourself after watching this intriguingly immoral production.

Scarlet Street is a 1945 film noir directed by Fritz Lang. Two criminals take advantage of a middle-age painter in order to steal his artwork. The film is based on the French novel La Chienne (“The Bitch”) by Georges de La Fouchardière, that previously had been dramatized on stage by André Mouëzy-Éon, and cinematically as La Chienne (1931) by director Jean Renoir.




As with all films this season, there will be a short introduction giving details and some background information on the movie and the actors to look out for… and all the audience can look forward to having tea/coffee and cakes free after the movie and discussing this movie and other film buff subjects in very good company.

The venue will be set in both cinema and cabaret-table style for patrons choice, and the movie will be preceded by a short introduction

2.30pm on Sunday 2nd April – Doors open at 2pm.

Tickets: £5 – includes free refreshments and cakes, served after the film.
