As part of the Parkside Gallery exhibition “Birmingham's Film Knight – Michael Balcon”, we are pleased to announce that we will be holding a special screening of The Blue Lamp.
The Blue Lamp won a BAFTA in 1950 for the "Best British Movie". The film was produced by Sir Michael Balcon during his time at Ealing Studios, it is considered a classic within Balcon's extensive production filmography containing over 300 films.
The Blue Lamp screening is a chance to revisit the golden era of cinema and look back at actors such as Jack Warner and Dirk Bogarde.
Professor Roger Shannon will be providing a talk prior to the screening which will provide a thorough insight into the work of producer Sir Michael Balcon and his contribution to the British film industry. The screening will be held in collaboration with the Flatpack Assemble.
You can find out more about Sir Michael Balcon's work via our blog and the upcoming exhibition. We look forward to seeing you at the screening!
