Please note this is a screening of an interview with Ian McKellen, followed by a live in person Q&A with the Director Joe Stephenson.

Built around a 14 hour interview, Playing the Part uncovers Sir Ian McKellen’s story.

From his upbringing living through the war, working through repertory and West End theatre becoming a pioneering stage star, coming out and being a leader in the campaign for equality, to his mainstream film breakouts as Magneto and Gandalf. His work and influence transcends generations, celebrated here in this fully authorised insight.

McKellen: Playing the Part features unprecedented access to private photo albums, a wealth of never-before-seen archive material, including diaries written when he was 12, and unseen behind the scenes of theatre shows and films, alongside his personal thoughts on a life long lived.
