6pm - Arrival

6:15pm sharp - Introduction from Timothy Spall, followed by screening

Award winning actor Timothy Spall (The King's Speech, Mr. Turner), joins us live on stage at Ritz Cinemas for a special filmmaker introduction prior to a screening of his new film Mrs. Lowry and Son. The film also stars Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave (Atonement, Julia)

Artist L.S. Lowry lives all his life with his over-bearing mother Elizabeth who constantly tries to dissuade him from pursuing his artistic ambitions, whilst never failing to remind him what a disappointment he is to her. Spending his days as a rent collector Lowry takes art classes in the evening and paints well into the early hours of the morning yearning for his work to be appreciated in London and beyond. While his disdainful mother is the ultimate obstacle to his success, she is the very reason Lowry paints anything at all, desperate to create something, anything, which will make her happy.
