Tuesday Cinema Club: The Petrified Forest

Tuesday 30 July| 8.30pm |Films of 1936 season| The Petrified Forest |Archie Mayo| 1936| Free, booking required

The Petrified Forest, based on Robert E. Sherwood’s 1935 play, seems to be (apart from the usual assistant directors) entirely Mayo’s own. Most famous, perhaps, for bringing to Humphrey Bogart his first draught of film prominence, The Petrified Forest is in fact quiet and tender and extraordinarily evocative of the loose-ended lives that the Great Depression wrought. It is a very fine film about a waitress, a hobo and a bank robber who get mixed up at a lonely diner in the desert.



  • Food is not allowed inside the cinema.
  • Please DO NOT book a seat if you are not sure of your availability. Seats are limited and each booking reduces the number of seats available to others.

  • If the film is SOLD OUT, there will be an automated waiting list, which will contact you if/when a seat becomes available.
  • Upon leaving the cinema, please consider making a donation towards the running costs to support the cinema club.
