The film season Classics From The Decades continues at the Under Ground Theatre with Best Years Of Our Lives from the 1940s.

Winner of 8 Academy Awards (Oscars) including Best Picture, this poignant 1946 film is considered the most deeply felt of all American movies to depict returning veterans. It quickly transports the audience back to the late 1940s to witness the traumatic adjustments (unemployment, adultery, alcoholism and ostracism) of three World War II servicemen to civilian life.

The sense of class distinction is unusually well handled and the portrayal of disability so honest & wrenching, it has seldom been equalled.

Stars Frederick March, Myrna Loy, Virginia Mayo, Dana Andrews and Hoagy Carmichael.

Showing at 2.30pm on Sunday January 10. Tickets: £5.
