Kennington Talkies presents; Theodroa Goes Wild (1936) Sunday May 21st @ 2:30pm
Kennington Talkies returns with a screening of Theodora Goes Wild (1936), starring Irene Dunne and Melvyn Douglas.
This romantic comedy, directed by Richard Boleslawski, which was nominated for two Academy Awards (for Best Actress and Editing), was Irene Dunne’s first comedy role after being cast in dramatic films. She plays Theodora Lynn, a Sunday school teacher in a small town that has been scandalised by the serialisation of a risqué novel in the local newspaper. The local literary society is up in arms, little knowing that Theodora has written the novel under the pseudonym Caroline Adams.

Kennington Talkies presents; Employees' Entrance (1933)  Sunday May 28th @ 2:30pm
Employees’ Entrance is a 1933 American Pre-Code drama, directed by Roy Del Ruth and starring Warren William and Loretta Young.
Kurt Anderson (William) is the tyrannical manager of a New York department store in financial straits, who thinks nothing of firing longstanding employees or of toying with the affections of his female staff. One such victim is Madeline (Young), a beautiful young woman in need of a job. Anderson hires her as a salesgirl, but not before the two spend the night together. Madeline then falls for Martin West, a rising young star at the store. Her biggest fear is that Martin finds out her guilty secret.
Advance tickets may be purchased from Billetto, or direct from the Museum by calling 020 7840 2200 during office hours.
