“ELSTREE 1976” Screening with Q&A from Director Jon Spira

Fairway Hall, Brook Close, WD6 5BT. 8:00pm

In 1976, during the hottest summer on record, Star Wars was shot in suburban North London. Nobody involved had any idea how big the film would become, many couldn't even remember the title. Yet, for the extras and actors in smaller roles, their faces hidden in masks and helmets, this seemingly insignificant job would go on to colour their lives even four decades later. ELSTREE 1976 is a portrait of a cross-section of these people; from the man inside the most iconic villain in film history to the guy whose character was completely cut from the final film. It tells the stories of their lives and explores the eccentric community they have formed, traveling the world, signing autographs for fans.

Tickets available from Fairway Hall and online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/ebtc

Tickets £6
