Michael Winner In Person
Lives Show! Triple Feature!
"My Life in the Movies & Other Places" / DEATH WISH / THE NIGHTCOMERS

Join us for a double feature of DEATH WISH and THE NIGHTCOMERS preceded by director Michael Winner's one-man show “My Life in the Movies and Other Places,” (60 min). Winner's show traces through hilarious stories his life in show business, how he became a top Hollywood director and his second career as a popular restaurant critic for The Sunday Times. Always met with gales of laughter and awe are his tales of the stars he directed and befriended over the course of his life, including Marlon Brando, Sophia Loren, Charles Bronson, Burt Lancaster, Orson Welles, Faye Dunaway, Anthony Hopkins and many others - even O.J. Simpson.

"The most amusing man in a profession full of awful people." - The Sunday Times

DEATH WISH
1974, Paramount Pictures, 93 min, USA, Dir: Michael Winner

Mild-mannered architect Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) unleashes his inner vigilante when his wife and daughter are attacked in this extremely influential thriller. Often imitated but never matched for raw power, DEATH WISH is action filmmaking of the highest order and contains one of Charles Bronson's most iconic performances.
