A 1950s Themed Pop-up Christmas Cinema Night in Hampstead

This sounds like the perfect night for film and nostalgia fans - and a chance to meet 50s actress June Cunningham; it's a great initiative by the Hampstead Film Society.

"The Hampstead Film Society in Belsize Park presents a 1950’s themed Christmas special.  We will be showing a complete 1950’s style cinema programme including original commercials, a Christmas cartoon and the classic Ealing comedy The Smallest Show on Earth .
We also have the immense pleasure of welcoming 50s movie actress June Cunningham who played the glamorous usherette Marlene Hogg.  Following the film there will be a Q&A with June Cunningham who will be answering questions on her work with the legendary Peter Sellers and celebrated director Basil Dearden.  We will also be serving mulled wine and mince pies. 
The Smallest Show on Earth is a 1957 British comedy film, directed by Basil Dearden, and starring Bill Travers, Virginia McKenna, Peter Sellers and Margaret Rutherford. The supporting cast included Bernard Miles, Leslie Phillips, Francis de Wolff, George Cross, June Cunningham and Sid James.  The screenplay was written by William Rose and John Eldridge from an original story by William Rose."
