Kennington Noir presents Mystery Street (1950)

Wed 18 May 2022 @ 19:30 · Events

Mystery StreetKennington Noir presents Mystery Street (1947), directed by John Sturges and starring Ricardo Montalban, Sally Forrest, Bruce Bennett, Elsa Lanchester, and Marshall Thompson.

When a skeleton turns up on a beach, local cop Ricardo Montalban uses forensics to find the identity of the body, what happened and who did the deed; but Elsa Lanchester steals the show doing a splendid turn as an eccentric, greedy landlady. As with last month’s T-Men, the classy noir cinematography comes courtesy of the great John Alton.

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.30 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.


Tickets £8.

Advance tickets may be purchased from Ticketlab, or direct from the Museum by calling 020 7840 2200 in office hours.
