McKellen: Playing the Part

Ian McKellen's life - in private, on stage, and on screen - is truly one to inspire; a new live cinema event held at the BFI Southbank in London and broadcast into cinemas across the country will see the actor in attendance in a celebration of his contributions.

The event will see the UK premiere of McKellen: Playing the Part, directed by Joe Stephenson, which builds itself around a 14-hour interview with the screen icon, from his early days working through repertory and West End theatre to his mainstream hits as Magneto and Gandalf.
