Smallest Show on Earth
Director: Basil Dearden
Run Time: 80 minutes, Certificate: ,
This classic comedy is being revived in honour of WNCC's 20th birthday because the only 16mm print was financed by the Club's 'Film Society of the Year' prize money in 1988. Its setting is the fading Bijou cinema, home to projectionist (Peter Sellers), cashier (Margaret Rutherford) and doorman (Bernard Miles), who determine to fight off the threat of closure by fair means or foul.
