A heart-warming comedy, The Smallest Show on Earth is a gently whimsical elegy to the Golden Age of cinema.
Presented as a brand-new remaster from the original film elements in its original theatrical aspect ratio.
Overjoyed to learn that they’ve inherited a cinema in the north of England, Matt and Jean Spenser are subsequently shattered to find it’s less of a grand picture palace and more of a fleapit (with three equally decrepit employees). Can the couple make a go of it or will they be forced to sell up and watch the Bijou Kinema be redeveloped into a car park?
