C.C. Baxter is an office clerk who courts favour with the executives in his office by giving them the key to his small apartment for their extramarital flings. Among them is his callous boss, J.D. Sheldrake, who Baxter eventually learns is using his place to sleep with Miss Kubelik, the sweet elevator operator the clerk has loved from afar. When Sheldrake coldly dumps the vulnerable young woman, she tries to commit suicide in Baxter's apartment, giving the clerk the opportunity to save the woman of his dreams but possibly lose his job.
Deliriously funny and with a brilliant cast including Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine, Billy Wilder's 1960 classic returns to the big screen as this year's Friends of Hyde Park Picture House Christmas screening.
We’re excited to be screening The Apartment as part of a trio of fantastic festive films with our neighbours at the wonderful Left Bank this December.
