Kent Museum of the Moving Image is delighted to announce it 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. The season runs from Friday 29th March until Easter Sunday, 21st April.

Four decades of great British film-making are represented in ‘Talking Pictures TV at Kent MOMI’: the 1960s by Sidney J. Furie’s high-octane crime drama The Boys; the 1950s, Ken Annakin’s seaside noir Double Confession; the 1940s, Carol Reed’s wartime drama The Stars Look Down; and the 1930s, Ivor Novello’s triumphant stage play adaptation I Lived with You. Programmes will also include some surprise shorts from the Renown archives.

Kent MOMI’s small screening hall has a full-HD projector, and a hearing induction loop is being installed ahead of the season. There is disabled access to the entire museum, a café and garden, and there will be refreshments available at the shows.

Screenings begin at 6pm, and the Museum’s exhibitions will be open from 12 midday until 6pm on the day of each screening. Tickets for the Museum’s exhibitions are valid for repeat visits to Kent MOMI for 12 months - prices (valid until 30th April 2019): Adult £5.50, Concession/U16 £4.00.
