Back again is the Jameson’s Movies on the Square season. Last years event brought Terminator, Donnie Darko, Shawshank Redemption and Psycho, among others, back to the big screen and this year looks to be just as good.
I’m sadly going to miss The Commitments (with a live band) tonight – it will be showing tomorrow evening too (bandless). But I will really be trying to catch Annie Hall on the 19th July and Some Like it Hot on 2nd August (my birthday, by the way). I’m most looking forward to the closing event though – Monty Python’s Life of Brian – on 22nd August.
(any excuse to play some Monty Python)
