Uk based fans (or even those from slightly further afield who are looking for an excuse to visit the cultural centre of the universe) should put Sunday October 26th in their diary in bold red ink.
As part of the 52nd BFI London Film Festival Leone’s classic Once Upon a Time in the West is being screened in celebration of it’s 40th birthday in all it’s techniscope glory at the Odeon West End. Kick off time will be 12.00 midday with a running time of 165 mins. The print on show will be the one recently restored by Paramount and it is hoped that the film will be introduced by Sir Christopher Frayling.
Tickets go on sale to BFI members from September 18th and to the general public from the 27th. Price £11.
I’ll add more details here soon.
