A Matter of Life and Death U

Tue 26 Dec, 2.40pm


Synopsis

It’s become something of a tradition for us to show a classic movie on Boxing Day each year, and what better way to take a break from left-over turkey sandwiches than with Powell and Pressburger’s brilliant 1946 film, presented in a pristine new 4K restoration.

David Niven stars as the archetypal stiff-upper lip English pilot Peter Carter who, after cheating death, must argue for his life in front of a celestial court. Will his love for radio-operator June be enough to save him?

Dir: Michael Powell,Emeric Pressburger
