MALVERN residents are being invited to enjoy a trip back in time when war films are screened at a town venue.

Malvern's Coach House Theatre in Grange Road is holding the week when classic British War films, made during the Second World War, will be shown.

Chris Green, one of the organisers of the event, said the plan was to create a nostalgic experience in seeing the films how they would have been shown to people during the war.

"We plan to make it a whole experience, with intro music from the period, an ARP warden in attendance, God Save the King at the end of each film," Chris said.

Although the films have been shown on television, it is hoped the audience seeing them on the big screen will be given a more real idea of what is was like to watch them when the bombs were still falling.

The week takes place from Monday, November 16, to Saturday, November 21, with films being shown in afternoon and evening screenings.

The First of the Few, a biopic of aircraft designer RJ Mitchell, will be screened on Monday at 2.30pm and 7.30pm on Friday.
