The Hunchback of Notre Dame

A classic of the cinema, with Charles Laughton under grotesquely expressive make-up as the doomed bell-ringer.

This adaptation of Victor Hugo's 1831 novel tells the story of the hunchback Quasimodo, who silently worships lovely gypsy girl Esmeralda.

Showing as a tribute to Maureen O'Hara who died recently.
