Stanley Kubrick's classic film A Clockwork Orange is to be given a one-off screening in the room where one of its most famous scenes was staged.

In the film, withdrawn by the late director after a number of attacks apparently emulating the violence of the movie, lead character Alex is seen receiving "aversion therapy" to stem his bloodthirsty urges.

Now the lecture theatre at west London's Brunel University in which it was shot will host a screening to mark the film's 40th anniversary.

Actor Malcolm McDowell - who played Alex - was seen in the scene with his eyelids pinned back to prevent him flinching from violent scenes to control his tendencies.

The event takes place on June 2 as part of Volkswagen's See Film Differently series. There will also be a one-off exhibition of stills from the film.
