‘Talking Pictures TV at Kent MOMI’ begins with The Boys, Sidney J. Furie’s courtroom drama about an ill-fated night on the town which ends in murder. For its combination of “over-the-top characterisations and true-to-life environments” one reviewer called it “Dickens circa 1962”.
Kent Museum of the Moving Image has teamed up with Talking Pictures TV (Sky 328, Freeview 81, Freesat 305, Virgin 445) to bring classic British cinema back to the big screen in a month-long season of free screenings at Kent MOMI.
