About this event

An avid Dickens fan, Armando Iannucci (the award-winning writer/director of The Death of Stalin) adapts here, alongside frequent collaborator Simon Blackwell, employing his comedic mastery and vivid characterisations to bring to life one of Dickens’ most cherished characters in The Personal History Of David Copperfield. From birth to infancy, from adolescence to adulthood, the good-hearted David Copperfield is surrounded by kindness, wickedness, poverty and wealth, as he meets an array of remarkable characters in Victorian England. As David sets out to be a writer, in his quest for family, friendship, romance and status, the story of his life is the most seductive tale of all.

About Parent and Baby

Every Wednesday at 11.30am we screen our main title films exclusively for parents/guardians/carers with babies up to one year old ('We are sorry that children over 1 year cannot be admitted.) Only the adults attending pay for their ticket which is just £8. Your baby will get their own seat, and you can bring in a carry cot or car seat. 

This screening is shown with English subtitles.

Armando Iannucci's rollicking adaptation announces itself as a radical and progressive reclamation of the heritage 'lit pic' from the off.
