The Old Vic Theatre has seen many murder mysteries over the years. In January 2021 its hosting a big budget Disney film, called “Untitled Murder Mystery” starring Sam Rockwell as a world weary detective trying to solve a series of murders. The film is set in the 1950s, partly in the glamorous world of London’s theatres, as well as the sordid criminal underworld.
At a time when the theatres have been ‘dark’ for many months, this filming is a financial lifeline. Lambeth Film office were happy to help the production with the logistical details such as parking and residents engagement.
