FILM stars will descend on a Welsh village for the world premiere of a lost film.
Kenneth Branagh, who stars in Alien Love Triangle, will be attending its opening at La Charrette in Gorseinon, near Swansea.
The movie, directed by Trainspotting’s Danny Boyle, also features Courtney Cox and Heather Graham.
Gorseinon’s own pocket-sized picture palace, made from a converted train carriage, is located in a back garden and played to packed houses of 23 people since 1953. But it is being forced to close its doors because it has fallen into disrepair.
As a fitting send-off, film critic and writer Mark Kermode, of BBC2’s The Culture Show, has arranged for Boyle’s never-released, 30-minute film to get its first showing there on February 23.
Mark said: “A phone call to producer Andrew Macdonald met with an enthusiastic response, and a promise to take the matter up with Miramax. And then came the cherry on the cake – if we could get the film, Kenneth Branagh would come to the premiere. Forget London’s Leicester Square – Gorseinon’s about to get red carpet treatment.”
