‘Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool’ saw 150 cast and crew descend on Muswell Hill’s Everyman cinema with Bell and Bening filmed waiting to see the movie ‘Alien’.

Crouch End’s Earl Haig Hall featured as a pub theatre where 1950s screen siren Gloria Grahame, played by Bening, went on a date with Peter Turner (Bell) after meeting at a Primrose Hill boarding house in 1979.

Hornsey Town Hall saw filming and the Hampstead Theatre features with Bening performing as Grahame.

The real Peter Turner, whose memoirs led to the film, plays a stage manager.
