Phenominal turnout for Maggie

The Lady in the Van with Maggie Smith demolished our previous box office record today. In fact, with 81 people we had difficulty fitting everybody in, which is a rare event indeed. As I said to the audience, if we needed proof that Maggie is a national treasure, today's large audience was confirmation.

I don't think anybody was disappointed with the film, although we thank you all for your indulgence as we tried to sort out seating for everybody.

Unfortunately we can't give you a Maggie Smith film every month, but after our brief interlude in May, when there will not be a film, we return in June with
Room, a critically acclaimed film that earned the leading actress, Brie Larson, an Oscar.

And in July we are presenting
Carol, which was heavily tipped for Oscar success, but unfortunately was overlooked, despite outstanding performances from Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara.

We thank everybody for their continuing support and look forward to seeing you all again.
