Synopsis:
Overjoyed to learn that they've inherited a cinema in the north of England, Matt (Bill Travers) and Jean (Virginia McKenna) Spenser are subsequently shattered to find it's less of a grand picture palace and more of a fleapit (with three equally decrepit employees). Can the couple make a go of it or will they be forced to sell up and watch the Bijou Kinema be redeveloped into a car park?

Gentle, fun British Comedy. - The Smallest Show on Earth review by Steve Mason

Spoiler Alert
07/10/2013

British comedy, more charming than hilarious, but enjoyable all the same. Travers and McKenna inherit and reopen a run down cinema, by no means aided by staff Sellers, Rutherford and Miles, who are all great playing elderly eccentrics. There's a lovely scene when the three watch a silent film in rapturous nostalgia.

Hilarious classic - The Smallest Show on Earth review by Harry

For the older generation, a trip down memory lane with some great stars. Bill Travers and Virginia McKenna were a fine teaming - they later co-starred in "Born Free". What a hilarious place to put a cinema! Very enjoyable.
