  • Polanski attends screening of Vampire rushes - where?

    Here is a photo a Roman Polanski attending a screening during the making of 'Dance of the Vampire.'

    Are there enough clues here for a forum member to identify the venue?

    That isn't Roger Moore on the left and Samantha Eggar on the right?

      Roger Moore would suggest ABPC Studios, Elstree

        This is one of those movies that has material filmed not just at ABPC Elstree, but also at MGM Borehamwood and Pinewood. Samantha Eggar did not do any big movies at Elstree during this period. Could the other portrait be Diana Rigg? If so then yes, this has to be ABPC Elstree.

          Any chance we can re-post the photo, as the bucket has made it vanish..

            From photo references we've confirmed that the screening was at the ABPC studio Borehamwood - the lobby identified from 'The Saint' and Royal visit photos - the cinema screen from 'The Elstree Story.' Polnaski and Tate then took a short drive to the MGM studio restaurant for lunch and a drink in 'The Lion's Den.'
