A gritty wartime drama from Carol Reed, the Oscar-winning director of The Third Man, The Stars Look Down reunites the stars of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes, Michael Redgrave and Margaret Lockwood, as a bright lad from a coal mining background and the manipulative girl he marries. The miners' struggle for safe working conditions remains relevant to this day.

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.
