Produced by a small London studio in the 1940s and 50s, the Ealing Comedies were renowned for the quality of their writing, star performances and understated humour.

The programme kicks off on March 1st with Alec Guinness, Stanley Holloway, Sid James and Audrey Heburn in the 1951 film The Lavender Hill Mob, continuing with Passport to Pimlico and Kind Hearts and Coronets – which saw Sir Alec play six roles – on March 2 and The Man in the White Suit and Whisky Galore on March 3.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: 'We had a live stage version of the Ealing comedy

'The Ladykillers here last summer and after the success we decided to do a season reviving these classic films on the big screen.
