Jean and Bill are a struggling married couple with Bill trying to scrape a living as a writer. Out of the blue they receive a telegram informing them that Bill’s long-lost uncle has died and left them his business – a cinema in the town of Sloughborough. They pack their bags and travel to Sloughborough expecting to sell the cinema to gain a huge inheritance, however, they discover the cinema is falling apart and is run by a comically incompetant staff who seem to have worked there forever. They set out with a plan to sell it but things don’t quite go to plan.

Film Review

Going to the cinema today is virtually a hands off experience.You can book your ticket online(don't even try to explain that to Miss Fazackerley)walk into a building the size (and with all the charm of)a missile silo,that contains a dozen screening rooms sited off long twisting passages,go to your numbered seat with a pre-ordered drink and watch in vain for that little dot in the corner of the screen that warned you of a reel change because there isn't going to be one.There won't be a second feature either and it will cost you the equivalent of a week's wages in 1957 for popcorn and orange juice for two. It won't be run by a charming young couple who address you by name and ask if you enjoyed the picture,and if you offered half a dozen eggs and a tub of home made butter as payment you'd soon be ringing for someone to raise your bail. This is our Brave New World.We have ended up with the cinemas we deserve. For those of you who wish it wasn't so let me prese…

Imagine inheriting an entire estate and finding it consists of a run-down fleapit cinema just under a railway line! That’s exactly what happens to Matt and Jean Spencer (Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna)when they receive a letter from the solicitor dealing with a long-forgotten great-uncle’s estate.With the beautiful and bizarre Bijou cinema taking centre stage, and its three odd employees (the wonderful Margaret Rutherford as Mrs Fazackalee; Peter Sellers as drunken projectionist Quill; and Bernard Miles as daft doorman Old Tom) livening up the proceedings with their eccentricity, the stage is set for a British movie with a warm heart and a genuine love of the silver screen.With Leslie Phillips as solicitor Robin, Francis de Wolff as the rival cinema owner Hardcastle, and Sid James as one of his trademark wideboy characters, this film is a treat from beginning to end. Of particular note is the scene where the three long-term Bijou workers watch silent films when the audience has gon…

Some films can be summed up in a single word. The one that best describes this is 'delightful'. There I've said it. Anything else is superfluous.Written by William Rose ( author of 'Genevieve' and 'The Ladykillers' amongst other classics ) and directed by Basil Dearden, it begins with a young couple – the Spensers ( Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna ) – who learn they have inherited a cinema in Sloughborough in the north of England. They assume they must be getting 'The Grand' ( it is the only cinema in the town ), but no, theirs is the 'Bijou', known by locals as the 'fleapit'. It is situated near a railway station so whenever trains fly past the building shakes as though an earthquake has hit it.The Grand's owner – tycoon Albert Hardcastle ( Francis De Wolff ) – wants the Bijou so he can knock it down and build a car park, but when he offers a paltry sum of money, the Spensers – acting on the advice of solicitor Robin Carter ( …
