"28/3/17 Gentle British comedy with Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna as a couple who think they have hit the big time when they inherit a cinema, not knowing it's a run-down dump run by three ageing eccentrics. A charming slice of 50's cinema with terrific comic turns from Peter Sellers and Margaret Rutherford."
