The Palm Arts Classic Cinema Series celebrates the art of cinema with the 50th anniversary showing of the films of 1969. Third in the series is the surreal dark comedy The Bed Sitting Room directed by Richard Lester and starring former Telluride resident Dudley Moore and his longtime comedic partner Peter Cook . Among the ruins of a London devastated by nuclear war, the survivors ineffectually cling to increasingly meaningless social structures. While radioactivity randomly transforms various people into animals and inanimate objects, an absurd election for prime minister takes place. And the parents of Penelope (Rita Tushingham), a young woman who’s been with child for nearly a year and a half, want her to marry a man with a promising future, though the fate of the world itself is rather dim.
