Audience Reviews for The Smallest Show on Earth
A classic British comedy, this charming film follows a newlywed couple (Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna) as they encounter an unexpected inheritance to a run-down cinema. Its aged, devoted occupants -- a dotty old lady, a drunk projectionist, and a simple, ancient usher -- help bring the cinema to some small profit, despite continued malfunction. The characters make the picture; their charm shines. Watch for the scene the three older folks give themselves a silent picture treat. Such tenderness.
Delightful British comedy of a young couple inheriting a run down movie theatre run by some eccentric characters. Superb cast, very entertaining and well written.
