The next Cinematologists screening will be Basil Dearden’s social issue film Victim (1961) starring Dirk Bogarde & Sylvia Syms.
Considered a film ahead of its time dealing with the social implications of homosexuality when it was still illegal and a taboo subject. On its release in the United Kingdom the film proved highly controversial to the British Board of Film Censors, and in the U.S. it was refused a seal of approval from the American Motion Picture Production Code.
The screening will be on Sunday March 12 at 7:30 at the Electric Palace Cinema, Hastings. Tickets are available from:http://www.electricpalacecinema.com
