The cinema, in Old Church Road, will host a Heritage Open Weekend to celebrate special sites all over the UK.

The three-day event will see films aired which have sparked controversy and interest.

Britain On Film: Railways will kick off the weekend on Friday at 1.30pm.

The film is a major new collection of rare archive films charting the history of the UK’s railways and bringing home the romance and heady freedoms offered through train travel as it spread across the country in the 20th century.

Vertigo will air on both the Saturday and the Sunday as part of the weekend. The film was first dismissed when it was initially released but later went on to be heralded as one of director Alfred Hitchcock’s finest films.

The film is an adaption of the French novel D’entre Les Mors which weaves an intricate web of obsession and deceit.

The string of fantastic films continues on Sunday with 1929 silent masterpiece Pandora’s Box.

Yet another controversial film on its release, Pandora’s Box was heavily censored back in the day but is still one of the top 100 films of all time.

In the role which made her famous, Louise Brookes plays Lulu – a sexy, amoral dancer who leaves a trail of devastation as she blazes through Berlin.

Heritage Weekend will start on September 14.

The Times has once again teamed up with the Curzon cinema to offer a lucky reader a pair of tickets to see one of the films over the weekend.

This competition will close at 9am on Monday and usual Archant rules apply.
