The Lady In The Van pops up in Plympton St Maurice

March 12, 2016

The Pop Up Picture House, our volunteer-run local pop up cinema will be screening The Lady In The Van starring Dame Maggie Smith on the first Friday in April. 


The Lady In The Van

Friday 1st April - Doors at 7pm for 7.30pm screening 

Plympton St Maurice Guildhall 


A big screen adaptation of writer Alan Bennett’s iconic and celebrated memoir, directed by long-standing Bennett collaborator Nicholas Hytner.


The film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming. 


Maggie Smith has been nominated for a BAFTA for Leading Actress, and a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy. Maggie Smith won Best Actress at London's Evening Standard Film Awards.
