Relaxed Screening: The Maltese Falcon (PG)


Relaxed Screening: The Maltese Falcon (PG)

Relaxed Screening
Saturday 2nd October 2021

Everyone is welcome, but we have made this screening especially suitable to those with Dementia, Autism, and anyone who finds standard screenings overwhelming. The event will be socially distanced and capacity has been reduced to a maximum of 40 people. The house lights will be left on low and the sound turned down a little. There will be no pre-feature adverts and the film will start at the time advertised. You can take in your own soft drinks and snacks. Tickets £4.

Seating arrangements: to ensure social distancing during the screenings, you will be asked to pick seat(s) when you book your ticket(s). You will have to remain in your allocated seat and not move around during the film, but you can leave/take breaks outside of the cinema if you need to.

Dir. John Huston, US, 1941, 100 mins. Cast. Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre.

Back on the big screen for its 80th anniversary, this absolute classic is adapted from Dashiell Hammett’s novel about Sam Spade, a San Francisco detective’s investigations into the murder of his business partner. Huston’s snappily witty script revels in colourful characterisations of the villains Spade encounters during his quest. Inspired casting included Peter Lorre as volatile Joel Cairo and Sydney Greenstreet as menacingly amiable Kasper Gutman. But it is the fraught, febrile relationship between Bogart’s Spade and Mary Astor’s femme fatale – who persuaded his partner to take on her case– that shapes the deep, dark core of desire, doubt and duplicity pervading the film from beginning to memorable end.
