This was going to be an Index piece, but it got a bit long. This Sunday, 29th October about 8:30pm, the annual mystery film expands to 50 screens (and one assumes different cinemas). Why not go see.

What I really mean by that is, to what extent is our viewing of a film part of a process. One which includes the poster, the actors, the reviews, the spoilers, the fact that its been out in the US for a couple of months. Is it possible to go and see a film “cold” and not know anything about it? And when was the last time you did? The mystery film is great for this, if not wholly successful. And now you have a chance to get in what with it taking place at 50 screens across London. I can’t remember the last time I saw a film without knowing something about it. Perhaps this will recharge my critical batteries.

Apparently there will be different mystery films. I’m guessing that a fair few may well be the Casino Royale (three weeks early – its probably ready…) But surprise yourself. So who wants to go where?
(Sadly I wanted to see it at Holloway, but that’s not open to the general public. Holloway Prison that is. So it may be a trip to Terminal 4 Heathrow instead.)
