Meet Me Tonight (aka Tonight at 8.30) will be showing at the BFI on 20th June at 6.30pm.
The film will be introduced by Barry Day, author of 'Coward on Film: The Cinema of Noel Coward'. Tickets go on-sale on 16th May at 11.30am - more information and book your tickets here.
These three Noël Coward-penned stories cover music hall mayhem, suburban suffering and a romp on the Riviera. A wealth of British talent enlivens this Noël Coward omnibus, consisting of three slices of life told with his trademark blend of incisive wit and affectionate observation. From music hall mayhem to suburban suffering and a romp on the Riviera, each playlet features a top-notch cast whose exuberant performances bring the situations to life. The adaptations were done by Coward himself; he had already re-purposed some of his one-act plays for the screen, most notably in the form of his best-known feature Brief Encounter. While the tales told here are less poignant, they are no less potent in their reflections on personal relations and social mores – and for sheer entertainment value, they’re hard to beat.
