Cinemagic 2023: Mark Kermode Film Night: The Amazing Mr. Blunden

6:00 PM 30th September 2023 Queen's Film Theatre

Cinemagic Film Festival presents a new Mark Kermode Night, with a screening of The Amazing Mr. Blunden (1972) followed by a Q&A with Mark Kermode.

Film critic, broadcaster and journalist Mark Kermode returns to Cinemagic for his annual Film Night to introduce and discuss The Amazing Mr. Blunden, his 2023 festival pick!

Near destitute after the death of her husband, a widow and her young children are approached by an elderly and mysterious solicitor, Mr. Blunden, who asks the family to become the caretakers of a derelict, partly fire-damaged country mansion. The family takes up the offer and shortly after moving into a small cottage on the mansion's estate the youngsters, Jamie, and Lucy, meet up with a pair of ghosts, Sara, and Georgie, two children who were killed in the fire at the mansion one hundred years ago. A wonderful supernatural adventure for the whole family.

Mark will be sharing his thoughts on the year’s new film releases before answering questions from the audience.

The film is presented by special arrangement with Handmade Films.

Film night host (as always) the brilliant Brian Henry Martin.

Event Running Time: Start 6.00pm (Exit: 9.00pm approx.)
