Double Treat

A double treat for motoring and racing fans and filmgoers at the same time. Rossiter books, of High Street, Ross are staging a special book-film event at the Phoenix Theatre, Ross. Called An Evening with Senna, Tom Rubython, author of a new biography on the life of Ayrton Senna will be talking about his book, and signing copies. This will be followed by a screening of the much acclaimed documentary on the life of Senna, reputedly one of the best ever Formula 1 racing drivers.

AN Evening with Senna will be held on Saturday, November 5th, so should go with a bang. Starting time is 7pm and the total cost is £8.00 (including the normal £5 film charge)

It is hoped this will be the first book-film presentations at the Phoenix.

Meanwhile the screen on the Phoenix has embarked on a programme of regular screenings. Films are being shown on alternate Sundays- in October this will be on October 9th (3.10 to Yuma) and October 23 (Man on Wire). To help make them a social evening, the doors open at 6.15 pm prior to the film screening at 7pm. This gives filmgoers a chance to use the excellent bar facilities at the Phoenix, with alcohol and soft drinks available at very competitive prices, before seeing the film- and afterwards if they want to make a real evening out.

Screen at the Phoenix has also started matineeshowings once a month. The next one is Breakfast at Tiffany’s on October 13th. Doors open at 12.15pm. with film starting at 3p.m. The matinees are aimed at the growing number of people, who don’t like late nights, especially in the winter months.
There will be a special matinee for younger people on Friday October 28th during the mid-term holiday. The film to be shown is Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs, starting at 3pm.

Prices for the matinees are the same as for the regular screenings at £5 a head, which essentially covers the cost involved, including the unavoidable performance rights fees.

The same price is charged for advance bookings and on-the-door tickets. However, advance bookings guantees you a seat of your choice.

Tickets for all screenings are available at Rossiter Books or online-
