Relax with a coffee and croissant at this breakfast screening of Frank Capra's classic comedy!

Please ensure to book in advance due to catering requirements.

When Mortimer Brewster (Cary Grant: To Catch a Thief, Charade) brings his new bride to meet his two kindly aunts, he discovers that, among many other acts of charity, the two genteel ladies help lonely old men die happy... by feeding them a wonderful meal before poisoning them.

Now, Mortimer desperately wants to protect the two serial murderers he loves, stop them from killing anyone else and keep his bride from discovering how complicated his family really is.

“Featuring Cary Grant in a role beloved by some and deemed overzealous by others (including Grant himself), the film [harbours] a strange blend of styles, including dark comedy and screwball antics, with a dash of romance for good measure.” Brian Eggert, Deep Focus Review

1944. USA. Director: Frank Capra. Cast: Cary Grant, Priscilla Lane, Raymond Massey. Duration: 1hr58mins. Cert: PG.
