After 15 years at The Dulwich Picture Gallery, East Dulwich Tavern and finally The Ivy House, The Bigger Picture film club has screened its final film. We would like to thank our hosts, the large number of local organisations who have supported us, the local charities we in turn have supported and above all, our loyal audience. We have thoroughly enjoyed screening some of the world's finest films and mounting the talks and events that frequently preceded them. Every evening has been unique and memorable. It has been a happy journey.

"As an evening at the flicks, it was about as perfect as you could get: relaxed, informal, but still achieving the buzz and excitement of a communal experience."
Dulwch on View
"Going to the cinema is great with it's comfy seats, and superior projection/audio. But the film club at the EDT feels somehow more sociable, and with an interesting (less mainstream) selection of films."
"It's what comunity film clubs should be about: good food and drink, great atmosphere and excellent programming."
"Everything about the experience is inviting; something the swankier cinemas try so hard to manufacture. I've been to nearly every film they've shown."
"I liked the mini fish and chips and the peas best.
The film was OK."
BRINGING UP BABY (1938)
Thursday 13 December 2018, 8pm
Now recognised as one of the best-ever pre-war screwball comedies and starring Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn (it was written as a vehicle for her), it matches a palaeontological nerd (Grant) with a scatterbrained heiress (Hepburn) - it was a commercial flop when it launched, earning Hepburn the sobriquet ‘box office poison’. But add in a tame leopard (Baby), a McGuffin of a search for a missing dinosaur bone (and an additional escaped wild leopard) – and a lot of wisecracks (some ad-libbed), and despite the views of the time, you have a great movie, eventually recognised as such by the industry and public alike.
Director: Howard Hawks
Running time: 102 minutes.
We say – this is not the only thing the public got wrong in 1938 – but where we didn’t get peace in our time we did get laughter. A truly funny and uplifting film.
