Myriad of movies featuring wartime Britain
The Venue at Bishop Grosseteste University are to launch a History On Film season of six movies about the Second World War.
Kicking off on Monday, October 7 will be In Which We Serve (U), and each film will be introduced by a member of the History Faculty staff at the university.
Released in 1942, In Which We Serve was written and co-directed by Noel Coward, who also starred in the tense and moving account of life aboard a wartime destroyer. Based on the experiences of Louis Mountbatten, the work is a state-of-the-nation film with social divisions on shore faithfully mirrored at sea.
This screening will be introduced by Dr Craig Spence, senior lecturer in history at Bishop Grosseteste University, who will place the film in its cinematic and historical context.
Other films in the History On Film series will include Went The Day Well (PG) on October 28, The Dam Busters (U) on March 31, 2014, and The Great Escape (PG) on April 28,2014.
Film times: 7.30pm. Tickets: £5 (£4 concs). Special offer of six films for the price of four – £20 adults, £16 concs. www.thevenuelincoln.co.uk
