A motion picture beyond wonder, come and join us on Powell and Pressburger’s stairway to heaven in their wonderfully audacious fantasy romance.
David Niven stars as a British wartime aviator who believes his number is up after his aircraft us badly damaged on a World War II bombing mission. Miraculously he survives, only to brought before a celestial court who put him on trial to determine if he should have joined them in afterlife.
After we were unable to screen A Matter Of Life And Death as part of The Luminaries' season earlier this year, we’re very pleased to be able to bring this classic back to the big screen as a special Christmas treat.
