Get dressed up for film spectacular at Greenwich Picturehouse
DID you know Snow White was considered so scary that it had to have cuts before it could be released in 1938?
Or that there used to be an H film category? Pick up facts like that, play games and watch classic cartoons at Greenwich Picturehouse this Easter.
Guests from the British Board of Film Classification will visit the cinema as it steps back in time with traditional ushers for a 1940s themed day on Friday, April 11.
Dressing up is encouraged.
Find out from a BBFC Film Examiner how films were age rated in the period around the Second World War and the challenges that faced filmmakers and the BBFC when London was bombed in the Blitz.
There will be plenty of 1940s cartoons, plus clips from old and more modern kids’ films like Tangled and Toy Story.
Tickets cost £8 adults, £7 concessions and £5.60 children. Go to picturehouses.co.uk/cinema/Greenwich_Picturehouse or call 0871 9025732.
