The Minet Library in Lambeth's Vassall Ward is starting a new season of film screenings focusing on the British new wave films which emerged in the late 1950s.

The first film to be screened will be Room at the top: an adaptation of John Braine's classic novel about a young man on the make in 1940s Yorkshire. Room at the Top is considered the first of the British New Wave of realistic and gritty film dramas. Simone Signoret won the Academy Award for Best Actress for this film, while Hermione Baddeley's performance became the shortest ever to be nominated for an acting Oscar.

Room at the top will be screened at 6:30pm on Tuesday 1 November 2011 at the Minet Library, Knatchbull Road, Camberwell, SE5 in Lambeth's Vassall Ward.
