Holmes and Watson are back, by popular demand, for a double bill matinee here at the UGT.

Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce are the master sleuth and his sidekick, in these classics from 1938 and 1945.

First up is ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’ – the very first film in a series of 14 starring the two actors in the lead roles.  Set in Victorian times, Sherlock is introduced to the viewing public in a masterly adventure that sees him on the trail of his arch enemy – Professor James Moriarty.

After tea and cakes in the interval, we’re entertained with ‘Pursuit to Algiers’, one of the later films set in modern times (in this case, 1945 when it was made).  In this instalment, Holmes is called upon to protect the life of a North African royal with intrigue and danger all around.

As usual, UGT technician and film buff Chris Leach will take pleasure in give a short upbeat powerpoint presentation before the films, enthusing about the movies and what the star actors and crew did in their careers and lives.

So, you can look forward to learning all about Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce – if you didn’t learn already from their last double bill here at the UGT.

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 3rd September at 2.30pm. Venue and coffee bar open at 2pm.

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