Due to unforeseen technical issues, we regret to inform you that we are unable to screen THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE AND HER LOVER on Friday 1 September as the night's scheduled second feature. Despite our best efforts, we have been unable to source another copy of the film. As a result, THE BEGUILED will be the only film screening on Friday night.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will endeavour to screen THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE AND HER LOVER as part of a future programme should the opportunity arise.
