5.  Galleries night

A rather amusing animated image was shown by Trish Thomas, you can see it by clicking here, wait a few seconds for it to load and get moving!  Who do you recognise and are you there?  If you have never clicked on anything before, you must really try this one!

6.  Son of Rambow tonight!

A runaway smash at the Sundance Film Festival, 'Son Of Rambow' is a hilarious take on friendship, family, film heroes and the adventures of growing up in the video age.  It begins in 1980s Britain, when young Will Proudfoot, raised in isolation among The Brethren, a puritanical religious sect in which music and TV are strictly forbidden, encounters something beyond his wildest fantasies: a pirated copy of RAMBO: FIRST BLOOD.

Will is easily persuaded to act in Lee’s home-made movie sequel. Armed only with a camera 'borrowed' from Lee’s brother and their limitless imagination, the pair plot stunt after stunt, dodging teachers and family all the way, as they do whatever it takes to finish their masterpiece in time to enter it in the national Screen Test competition. Moving, funny and utterly British, 'Son of Rambow' is a triumph for all concerned.

Guest tickets available from The Windjammer 7.30-7.55 £3.50  Our bar at The Guildhall opens 7.30 - film to be shown at 8pm approx.
