The Card Shark Show is showing in the stunning 5 star luxury, intimate private cinema / theatre of the Courthouse Hotel, in London's Great Marlborough Street W1. An historic Grade II listed building which was formerly the Marlborough Street Magistrates Court. Charles Dickens worked in the building in 1835, and many famous people were tried in the court, including Oscar Wilde, Mick Jagger and John Lennon. The courtroom is now the hotel restaurant Silk, and features the original judge's bench, dock and witness stand. In the bar the original cells remain, doors open, including the cell that Christine Keeler was held in at the start of what became the Profumo Affair in the 1960's. The theatre space hold only 96 people, making the show a truly intimate and personal experience. The fitting venue to explore the crooked ways of gambling cheats and con artists.
