Local screening of movie classic set in Lyme

All Over The Town will be shown at Lyme mill Malthouse – together with short film of the Lyme branch railway
All Over the Town, the 1948 film comedy set in Lyme Regis, will be showing at The Town Mill Malthouse on Monday (August 18).
First up is the short feature ‘Memories of the Lyme Regis Branch”, the line which ran between Lyme and Axminster from 1903 to 1963.
All Over The Town is set in the ‘small seaside town’ of ‘Torcross’ and was filmed almost entirely in Lyme Regis. Scenes and sights with which today we are familiar appear like old friends in different guises - instead of a supermarket, for example, not even Woolworths, but a garage for the repair of all those black-only Fords - but many locations are still recognisable.
This gentle comedy was released in 1949, starring Norman Wooland, Sarah Churchill and Cyril Cusack. The plot concerns an RAF pilot who returns to his job as a newspaper reporter in the small seaside town.
The door opens at 6.30 pm with the films starting at 7pm. A bar will serve wine and soft drinks. Admission is £5 for adults (£4 for Town Mill volunteers) and £2 for children. All proceeds will go to The Town Mill.
To book tickets or for more information, contact Diana Forrest on 01297 443135. Tickets will also be available on the door.
