The theatre's film programmer, Steve Carley, says: “After much delay, Bond is finally back to save the day in No Time to Die, on our screen in November. To mark the occasion, we were hoping to screen a classic Bond as well, but they've been taken out of circulation for the time being. So instead we have the only man who can out-Bond Bond – James Coburn as Flint!

“For music lovers, we have fantastic concerts from The Doors and Cliff. Plus a documentary on Mary Quant by actress Sadie Frost, the latest in our popular Exhibition On Screen series - Raphael Revealed and some great new films, including one for Sopranos fans – The Many Saints of Newark."
