The team at Hitchin Film Club join forces with Benslow Music to host a memorable moonlit movie experience this weekend.

On Sunday evening the Hitchin performance and tuition venue will be marking the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain with a screening of the 1941 film Dangerous Moonlight.

The wartime hit, known as Suicide Squadron in the USA, stars Anton Walbrook and Sally Gray with a musical score written by Richard Addinsell which includes the famous Warsaw Concerto.

The plot is a love story revolving around the fictional composer of the concerto, a piano virtuoso and shell-shocked combat pilot, who meets an American war correspondent in Warsaw.

And there will be a live performance of the short concerto by award-winning pianist John Paul Ekins on the night.

Doors open at 6.30pm on Sunday evening and £10 tickets are available from the Benslow Music box office on 01462 459446.
