Britain’s Got Talent judge David Walliams and his wife Lara Stone was among the stars who attended the BFI Hitchcock Blackmail VIP drinks reception and screening.

They mingled with other celebs at the event, including Gary Kemp, Miranda Richardson, Terry Gilliam and Stephen Frears.

The British Museum was abuzz for the BFI’s reconstructed screening of Hitchcock’s classic.

The event marked the first BFI signature event of the summer consisting of an outside screening of the 1929 classic with a live orchestra performance composed by Neil Brand and Timothy Brock.

The highlight of the evening was when the entire audience, including 1,000 cinema fans, was asked to put on Alfred Hitchcock masks and then captured by a photographer on the roof to create an eerie group shot.
