Directed by Billy Wilder (1950)
This evening will be brought to you by Ciné-Real, one of the only film clubs in the UK to exclusively play films in their original 16mm format. For this special one-off evening, you will be able to enjoy a classic film with the same sound and quality audiences would have experienced when it was originally released.
Gloria Swanson stars as Norma Desmond, an ageing silent-film queen, and William Holden, as the struggling young screenwriter who is held in thrall by her madness. Winner of three Academy Awards, director Billy Wilder's powerful orchestration of the bizarre tale is a true cinematic classic. From the unforgettable opening sequence - a body found floating in a decayed mansion's swimming pool - through to the inevitable unfolding of tragic destiny, Sunset Boulevard is the definitive statement on the dark and desperate side of Hollywood.
Ciné-Real is a non-profit which aims to unite film makers, actors, writers, directors, producers, photographers and enthusiasts in their appreciation of classic film.
