A Place in the Sun

The Oscar-winning adaptation of Theodore Dreiser’s An American Tragedy.

The winner of six Oscars (for direction, screenplay, cinematography, score, costumes and editing), it centres on George Eastman (Clift), a shy, slightly awkward Midwesterner who arrives in California hoping for a job in his uncle’s factory. He’s in luck, and though he secretly starts dating assembly-line worker Alice (Shelley Winters) against company rules, he’s soon promoted. That wins him a tentative foothold in the world of his wealthy relatives – where he meets and immediately falls for beautiful socialite Angela (Taylor).

We'll meet in the ticket hall entrance of the BFI at 6.00pm and then go for a drink after the film. I'll be carrying a Meetup sign or if you can't find me feel free to give me a call on[masked]

Hope to see you guys there!

    February 12, 2013

    • Philip W.

      The film starts at 6.10. You be okay to get a ticket on the night.

      February 12, 2013

  • Francesca

    What time does the film actually start?

    February 12, 2013

  • Teri M.

    Can't attend tomorrow's due to work

    February 12, 2013

  • Jo

    so where are most people sitting or are we going to meet up at the end?

    February 12, 2013

    • Philip W.

      If people want to put their seat numbers on here people can try and sit together. Failing that we'll be meeting up at the start and end of the film.

    The entrance of the BFI implies to me downstairs, but there are two entrances, and last time we met upstairs where there is more space and where the NFT3 is, so I assume we are meeting upstaris again by the ticket office. Is that correct?

  • Philip W.

    Hey everyone! Really looking forward to this tomorrow. My number is[masked], please make a note of it before you head out so you can find the group when you arrive.

    Hi, are we buying tickets in advance? I just checked and there arent that many seats left, especially if we want to sit together. Only the second row from the back seems to have a lot of seats together.

    February 10, 2013

    • Christopher

      Yes, I wouldn't take the risk of it being sold out on the day and having to arrive earlier to queue. There is a machine to collect tickets bought in advance.
