Movie Memories: The Man Who Would Be King (PG)

Thursday 21 October (11.00)
Contains mild language and scenes of violence

Please note the film begins at the stated time (11.00), there are no adverts or trailers.

Based on the famous short story by Rudyard Kipling, this adventure film follows the exploits of Peachy Carnehan (Michael Caine) and Danny Dravot (Sean Connery), English military officers stationed in India.

Tired of life as soldiers, deciding that the country is too small for them, the two travel to the isolated land of Kafiristan, in order to become Kings in their own right. Ultimately, they are embraced by the people and revered as rulers but after a series of misunderstandings, the natives come to believe that Dravot is a god, and he and Carnehan can't keep up their deception forever. All tickets £3.
