| Recommended! A fine Ealing-esquire story for all who love film!
I saw "Coming Up Roses" theatrically in 1990 at a nearby arts/revival house, with accompanying discussion, among a large group of appreciative other patrons. Today it's rather hard to locate, but I recommend tenacity in your search, as this film is reminiscent of the great Ealing and Frank Capra "community-pulling-together" comedy/dramas.

The concept here is one that holds special identification to those of us who frequent this film database ... a failing old movie theatre, and the efforts to breathe new life into it. Who among us has not felt a special sadness at seeing a once-grand but now-shuttered and darkened film palace? The proceedings here aren't as dreary, but are done with wit and style, and it's a memorable production that you'll like and remember.

On the evening I saw this, the discussion moderator announced that the real-life cinema used in "Coming Up Roses" was indeed up for a community-based restoration project, which I later heard had subsequently failed.
