The Far Pavilions is an epic novel of British-Indian history by M. M. Kaye, published in 1978. The novel has been hailed as a masterpiece, based partly on biographical writings of the author's grandfather as well as her own childhood experiences in India. It inspired HBO's first mini-series (1984). It was the most expensive made-for-cable movie at the time. It was also made into a musical (2005) and a radio play (2011).

This film is in English and will be screened in two parts. Peter Duffell directed the five-hour television miniseries and demonstrates his ability to handle large resources with authority. The film also has an ensemble cast including Amy Irving, Ben Cross, Christopher Lee, Omar Sharif, Rossano Brazi etc. Carl Davis composed the score which is a much-sought after collector's item.

This will be free to our members* and a special price of $20 to non-members.

This is your last chance to see it on a big screen and compare it against Gone With the Wind, another literary masterpiece. You be the judge!
