The Ladykillers (1955) at the Paradise Theatre

Toronto Film Society presents Targets (1968) at the Paradise Theatre on Sunday, April 7, 2024 at 2:30 p.m.

Ealing Studios arguably reached its peak with this wonderfully hilarious and macabre comedy that has become a staple on lists of the greatest British films ever made. Alec Guinness leads a group of quirky criminals who plan a high-stakes bank robbery under the nose of an unsuspecting landlady who becomes an unwitting accomplice to the caper. Along the way, the film brilliantly blends the sinister with the absurd, thanks to a sharp-witted script, sure-footed direction, and a terrific supporting cast of British comic stalwarts including Cecil Parker, Herbert Lom, and Peter Sellers. A must watch!

The afternoon includes a live introduction to the film, a door prize (or two!), some specially selected shorts, and the feature. We expect the programme to last approximately 2 hours. Doors open at 2 pm – come early to enjoy the wonderful pre-show and playlist!
