McKenna and Travers make a handsome couple (as they did in real life) in this light British comedy about a husband and wife who inherit a run down cinema complete with equally creaky staff (Miles, Rutherford and Miles). Phillips is the suave solicitor who advises them.
There's more than a little vibe of the later Goodman vehicle, Matinee, as well as the classic Ealing comedies in the resulting escapades. Anyone who is a fan of silent film and old cinemas will find something to enjoy in this harmless and undemanding comedy.
Verdict: Fun period piece.
