Save the Rose, a film shot on VHS by local resident Richard Miller, brilliantly captures the atmosphere and tension which built during the day and on into the evening as Simon Hughes MP, Sam Wanamaker, Simon Jenkins and others addressed the campaign rally to ensure the site was preserved for future generations.
The screening includes a newly-edited version of the film, together with an introductory talk by Richard Miller on his impressions of the Bankside area in the 1980s, the subsequent discovery of the theatre remains and the making of his film.
