Kennington Classics presents A Star Is Born (1937), Sun March 17th @ 2:30pm
The original version of the romance between a female star in the ascendency and a male star on the skids was set in the world of Hollywood, not music. It stars Janet Gaynor and Fredric March as the lovers. Director William Wellman gained the only Oscar of his career for the film, ironically for Best Writing (Original Story), which he shared with co-writer Robert Carson. Tickets £6.

Without You, I'm Nothing (1990), Sun 17th March @ 7:30pm
30 years ago, Sandra Bernhard, the iconoclastic and irreverent comedian created a one-woman show, Without You I’m Nothing, a heady mix of stand-up, pop culture, political tirade and even striptease. In 1990 came a film of the same name, directed by John Boskovich and produced by Nicolas Roeg.
Naturally, a film as unconventional as this did not set the box office on fire. But in the years since, Without You I’m Nothing has become an urban legend: it is a zany, caustic, queer and massively entertaining commentary on life, work, love, race and 20th century American culture, completely perverting our idea of who performers are, and what they have to be. Fringe! are proud to present this rare 35mm film screening of a truly queer cult classic. Tickets £6.
