Film: McKellen: Playing the Part

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Please join us as we celebrate one of Britain’s true acting icons on his birthday weekend!  Built around a 14-hour interview, ​the story of ​ McKellen’s ​life and work are revealed ​ from his upbringing during the war​…​ ​ ​through​ his work in ​repertory and ​ West End theatres, and ​- ultimately – to his becoming a pioneering stage star, ​his ​coming out (​and ​becoming a leader ​in the movement for ​equality) and  his achieving​ ​mainstream ​cinema success as ​both Gandalf and Magneto!  Featuring unprecedented access to private photo albums and a wealth of never-before-seen archival material (including diaries written when ​McKellen was 12, and unseen behind-the-scenes footage from ​film and ​ theatre), McKellen’s work and influence ​truly transcends generations.  Not Rated.  96 minutes.
