There will be a rare opportunity to see Swindon icon Diana Dors on screen Wednesday 14 September, when she stars in Yield to the Night, showing at the Central Library.
Screening as part of the library’s "Swindon: The Teenage Years” event, it is widely regarded as her best film, and was inspired by the tragic life and death of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in the UK.
The film starts at 7:30, and tickets are on sale now at the Library 1st floor help point, price £4, or £3 concessions.
Also showing at the library on the following Tuesday, 20 September, is the 1960’s ‘Swinging London’ classic Blow-Up.
Swindon Film Society chair Barbara Hoffbauer says: "The library has chosen two excellent and influential films for ‘The Teenage Years’ event. They give us a fascinating glimpse into life and culture in the 1950’s and ‘60’s – not just about how it was, but also how much it changed in a decade or so."
More details about the films, and others in the new Film Society season, are on the website www.swindonfilm.org.uk – or phone 01793 330639.
