Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 209: Thu Jul 28

The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane (Gessner, 1976):
Prince Charles Cinema, 8.45pm

This 35mm screening curated by Josh Saco at Cigarette Burns is part of the 'Check The Gate' season at the Prince Charles, dedicated to presenting films on film that will run at the cinema from 9th July to August 20th.

Prince Charles Cinema introduction:
Quiet, withdrawn 13-year-old Rynn Jacobs (Jodie Foster) lives peacefully in her home in a New England beach town. Whenever the prying landlady (Alexis Smith) inquires after Rynn's father, she politely claims that he's in the city on business. But when the landlady's creepy and increasingly persistent son, Frank (Martin Sheen), won't leave Rynn alone, she teams up with kindly neighbor boy Mario (Scott Jacoby) to maintain the dark family secret that she's been keeping to herself. 

Here (and above) is the trailer.
