Festival of 50s Cinema Evenings

Beamish Museum

British films from the 1950s will be celebrated at two special cinema evenings as part of Beamish Museum’s Festival of 50s.

Beamish is showing Peter Sellers’ first film, Penny Points to Paradise (1951), as part of an Adelphi film night on Friday, 7th July.

The first Ealing comedy shot in colour, The Titfield Thunderbolt (1953), will be shown on Saturday, 8th July at the ticketed events.

The museum is excited to be working with Adelphi Films Ltd. The company was a major producer and distributor of 1940s and 1950s British films, including Penny Points to Paradise.
The films attracted many actors who went on to become household names in the UK and beyond.

Visit www.beamish.org.uk for more information on the museum’s cinema evenings and to buy tickets, subject to availability. Tickets cost £10 and include a bag of Beamish sweets and a bottle of aerated water from the chemist’s in The 1900s Town.
