The Sin Of Harold Diddlebock (1947 BW 90m) Sunday 5th February – 2.30pm

Film starts at 2.30pm – Venue and cafe bar open at 2pm
All tickets are £5, includes tea and cake and great discussion after the film.
Cinema set in traditional and table style. Each film will be introduced


The Sin of Harold Diddlebock is a 1947 comedy film written and directed by Preston Sturges, starring the silent film comic icon Harold Lloyd, and featuring a supporting cast including Jimmy Conlin, Raymond Walburn, Rudy Vallee, Arline Judge, Edgar Kennedy, Franklin Pangborn, J. Farrell MacDonald, Robert Dudley, Robert Greig, Lionel Stander and Jackie the Lion. The film’s story is a continuation of The Freshman, one of Lloyd’s most successful movies.

A few critics consider this film a masterpiece of comedy. Lloyd was never to star in another film, turning instead to production, and releasing compilation films featuring his earlier silent film work.


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 5th February – Doors open at 2pm.

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