We’re excited to present our first online Movie Memories screening with British crime caper The Ladykillers in which a plan, made by five oddball criminals to rob a bank, is thrown into chaos by a sweet elderly lady.

The last of the great Ealing Comedies, The Ladykillersis a wonderfully macabre black comedy directed by Alexander Mackendrick (Whiskey Galore!) and stars Alec Guinness who delivers a typically mesmerising performance as criminal mastermind Professor Marcus.

For those who enjoy a musical interlude, there is bonus content to boost your experience. If you rent the film you will have access to music videos beautifully performed by guitarist Laura Browne. With thanks to Shape History for production.

All tickets £3.49. Film content: mild threat, violence
