Further screenings will be held throughout February and March. Check online for details.
The National Archives are also hosting the Centenary Stitches exhibition This display of clothing from the film tells the story of how an international army of knitters was created almost by accident, not only to help costume the film, but also to reveal the extraordinary range of knitted items produced back home for men in the trenches.
