This event has finished.

This forgotten film noir comes home to its shooting location of Folkestone, on a rare 35mm print courtesy of the BFI.

In October 2013, the cinema showed a rare 35mm print of Temptation Harbour, a forgotten 1947 film noir featuring the original Doctor Who actor William Hartnell, which was shot on location in Folkestone and St Margaret’s Bay. The print was generously provided by the British Film Institute from their National Film Archive, and the screening was preceded by a specially recorded introduction by actress Margaret Barton, who shared fond memories of filming in the area and the warm welcome the cast received from local people.
