Currently filming in Wales, Save the Cinema is the true story of hairdresser and youth theatre leader Elizabeth Myrtle Evans MBE, who undertook a campaign to save the Lyric Theatre from closure, with the help of the Mayor of Carmarthen Richard Goodridge.
The Lyric Theatre managed to secure a release of Steven Spielberg’s classic film Jurassic Park alongside the London premiere a day before wide-spread release. In London a ticket cost more than £100, and the Lyric Theatre charged the regular amount for a ticket in the 1990s: £2.50.
The film is aiming to be released in cinemas and via Sky Cinema towards the end of 2021.
Rupert Everett, Derek Jacobi and Tom Felton have joined the ensemble cast of “Lead Heads,” described as a “drama about greed and the repercussions it has on the soul.” Also in the cast are Luke Newberry, Mark Williams and Olatunji Ayofe. Giles Borg directs. Principal photography begins in March in London. The film centers on “a group of men, strangers to one another but all corrupted by greed, who, in their desperation, are drawn together for one night to play a game that may cost them both their souls and lives,” according to a statement from the producers, Lawrence Steven Meyers, Randy Dannenberg and John Evangelides. Alexa Waugh is onboard to line produce. The script was written by Patrick Makin.
