Our next PdOC Film Night will feature 'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp' (1943) at the Mill Lane Postdoc Centre. Please come along and get comfy with your own drinks and snacks. Guests are welcome. This event is entirely FREE and will likely finish with a visit to a nearby pub after the film. Capacity is 80 people.

'The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp' is a classic feature by legendary British filmmakers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. Renowned for its striking Technicolor, and made during the height of the Second World War, it was controversial for its sympathetic German characters and its satire of the British army. The story mixes war story with romantic drama, telling in flashback the life of a Home Guard commander (Roger Livesey) who fought in two previous wars, including his love for Edith (Deborah Kerr) and the trials he faces as both a younger and older man. Running time is 163 minutes.
