Friday 15 April
“Quite simply, the ultimate, authorised version: filmed in the very street, in the very house, in the unchanged rooms where it all happened…the glory of the film remains: Maggie Smith, the best thing ever to come out of Romford, possibly. She’s hilarious. There’s nobody like her.”
Our April screening is hosted in association with the Ladies Tuesday Club, and all profit from the screening will go to local good causes. There will be a pay bar and raffle to raise additional money.
In The Lady in the Van, Dame Maggie Smith recreates one of her most celebrated roles – the singular Miss Shepherd. The film is based on Alan Bennett’s memoir and stage play, and was filmed on the street and in the house where Bennett and Miss Shepherd lived. Acclaimed director Nicholas Hytner reunites with Bennett (The Madness of King George, The History Boys) to bring this touching, poignant, and life-affirming story to the screen.
