What’s on


Week commencing Sunday October 21, what’s showing this week at the local cinema? Fifty years ago, that is.

On at the Odeon is The Miracle Worker, bizarrely X-certificated, supported by the B-picture The Lamp in Assassin Mews – a comic murder romp with Francis Matthews (aka Captain Scarlet or Paul Temple). At the Queen’s – our local widescreen cinerama theatre at the time – is the sunken epic Barabbas, one of the less often shown spectacles on the box (has it ever been on?). Then, up the road, there’s Dr No supported by another B-movie called Deadly Duo. All links lead to IMdb.

It is the time of the Twist, as the evenings advertised in the local palaces of dance proclaim.
