As a fitting tribute to Leslie Phillips CBE who was a Patron of The Plaza and passed away in 2022 we are honoured to present one of the many films which made him a much loved star.

When Matt Spenser (Bill Travers) and his wife, Jean (Virginia McKenna), inherit a small cinema, the Bijou, from a distant relative, they are shocked to find a decrepit building that comes with a group of aging employees. Following a discussion with Robin Carter their solicitor (Leslie Phillips), Matt and Jean try to sell the Bijou to Albert Hardcastle (Francis De Wolff), the owner of a large nearby cinema, but he gives them a lowball offer. Instead they decide to open the cinema, using a few clever marketing schemes to gain viewers at the expense of Hardcastle.

Organist on The Mighty Compton Organ: Mr Paul Greenwood.
