One Week Until Elstree 1976

Next Saturday, Leamington Spa will be getting distinctly star wars-ey – with the first ‘Spa Wars’ event during the day, followed by our screening of ace doc, Elstree 1976, in the evening.

Both events take place at the big, gothic All Saints church located at the bottom of the parade.

Doors for the screening are at 7.30pm and the film action starts at 8.00pm, Following the screening there will be a Q&A featuring producer Hank Starrs and cast member of Elstree 1976 (and coincidentally Star Wars), John Chapman, all conducted by Leamington’s very own Nic Pillai.

Tickets are £10 from: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/407159

If you are a poor tax-dodging student however, it is just £5!:  http://www.wegottickets.com/event/422938

Some examples of the critical praise for this cool film, which has a very respectable 80% on Rotten Tomatoes:

“Elstree 1976 is a must-see for Star Wars fanatics, and coming shortly after the much-hyped franchise adrenaline shot that is The Force Awakens, it’s almost shocking to hear firsthand accounts of the first film’s way-under-the-radar status.”

“In telling a small story of bit players, the director, Jon Spira, captures a more universal picture of the droplets of fame created by a pop-culture tidal wave.”

“A deadpan documentary with notes of wistful irony …”
