The Autumn Season is now underway with an eclectic programme that includes: a celebration of the legendary Scala cinema with cult double bill Pink Flamingos and Bride of Frankenstein; more horror, first in the form of the creepy 1929 film The Silent House, then with an evening in the company of eminent horror writers Kim Newman and Jonathan Rigby, and finally at our Halloween event “Pumpkino”; a cracking children’s workshop on Gromit-building from senior Aardmans’ animator Jim Parkyn; conversations with Earl Cameron, Dudley Sutton and Ron Moody; and even a grand reunion of St Trinian’s girls!
