18:00 = The Smallest Show on Earth, 1957, Directed by Basil Dearden, 80 minutes, / A movie that is all about old fashioned movie going and thus perfectly suited for Husets Biograf which is the last commercial cinema in Denmark to screen authentic 35mm movie film. In this British cult classic a newly married couple inherit a dilapidated cinema and its incompetent staff and resolve to transform its fortunes but they soon find that their hopes for the future are far more difficult to realise than anticipated. In praise of fleapits everywhere, this charming comedy will bring back happy memories for anyone who pines for the days when going to the pictures meant something more than being conveyor-belted in and out of a soulless multiplex. Fondly scripted by John Eldridge and William Rose - the latter penned Genevieve and The Ladykillers - and deftly directed by Basil Dearden, it stars Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna as a couple who inherit a crumbling cinema. The cast alone makes the movie a must-see, and the sequence in which projectionist Peter Sellers, pianist Margaret Rutherford and doorman Bernard Miles relive the glories of the silent era is priceless.
