MONDAY 28 MARCH 2022 (A–Z) // What’s on in London today across DIY, indie & alternative cinema including one-off screen events, film seasons, film festivals & our selection of new releases.
THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN d. Val Guest, 1957 (28 MAR 20:50) / Part of NIGHTMARES AND DAYDREAMS: A CENTENARY CELEBRATION OF SCREENWRITER NIGEL KNEALE at BFI Southbank:
“Two men with opposing views undertake a dangerous trip to the Himalayas in search of the Yeti. Although Kneale and Cartier’s 1955 TV drama The Creature hasn’t survived, this Hammer version (scripted by Kneale) is remarkably faithful to the original, albeit on a grander scale and budget. It also boasts the small-screen’s top actor of the 1950s, Peter Cushing, recreating his TV role.” (BFI)
