Saturday Night and Sunday MorningPG

14th BAFTAs Winner – Best Film, Best British Actress (Rachel Roberts), Most Promising Newcomer (Albert Finney)

Q&A: Theatre critic, writer and biographer John Lahr will join Karel’s son Matthew on stage for a post-film Q&A.

Karel Reisz’s first feature film, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, was one of the defining works of so-called British New Wave cinema, compassionately exploring an under-portrayed section of English life. Centred around a searing performance from Albert Finney as he navigates his working life and multiple relationships, this adaptation of Alan Sillitoe’s novel sets out a bold philosophy.

Programmed in association with the Reisz family and on select screenings in partnership with Park Circus. Season artwork by Beth Morris.
