Brighton Rock will be the first in a series of Boulting Brothers films screened at the Riverhouse Barn.

During the 1950s, the Boulting Brothers took over Shepperton Studios, with John directing and Roy producing.

The brothers, who were identical twins, produced some classic films of the period, with the best loved to be screen as part of a monthly series.

The first in the series, Brighton Rock, will be introduced by Nigel Algar, head curator at the British Film Institute.

Starring a young Richard Attenborough and Hermione Baddeley, Brighton Rock is a film noir about the criminal underbelly of inter-war Brighton, based on Graham Greene’s novel of the same name. Tense, sordid and disturbing, Brighton Rock was the most popular British film of 1947 and is still a classic.

Following the screening of Brighton Rock, I’m Alright Jack will be shown on April 3 and introduced by Liz Fraser, veteran star of British comedies and many Carry On films.

The third film in the series will be Seven Days to Noon on May 3.
