For those of you who haven't been to the Rex in Berkhamsted, it is a stunning Art Deco cinema, lovingly restored and reopened in 2004 with a huge local effort.
Even if you are not sure about the film, the cinema is worth the visit on its own.
Most films sell out here so you will need to be quick.
There are caberet seats at the front of the cinema with tables and a bar serving coffee, alcohol and snacks. Tickets for the caberet area at the front and we have 8 reserved.
Charge is £8.50 (£6.50 for the ticket and £2.00 towards admin, paypal fees, queuing in the rain for an hour, coffee and snacks)
If demand is high, please put yourself on the waiting list and I will see if we can get some more tickets nearer the time.
We can go to Gatsbys for a drink afterwards.
Due to the number restrictions you will need to pay via Paypal when you RSVP.
Review from the Rex Site
2014, Cert U, 92 mins
Much like Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, or that Family Guy episode; Peabody & Sherman is an enjoyably silly romp through time.
“Derived from a recurring segment of the old 1960s US TV show Rocky and Bullwinkle this animation follows Mr Peabody, a super-intelligent beagle resident in a spectacular New York apartment who has been granted the right to adopt a human boy: this is seven-year-old Sherman (voiced by Max Charles).
Mr Peabody is a finicky and precise but very caring foster parent, with a slight resemblance to Dr Niles Crane in the 90s TV show Frasier. He wants to complete young Sherman’s historical education with a time-machine he has invented, allowing them both to visit various important eras” (Guardian)
“The vehicle literally driving the plot is Peabody’s time-travel machine the WABAC (pronounced way back), which spirits him and Sherman off to the French Revolution, ancient Egypt, the Renaissance and the Trojan wars.
In each era, there’s a light sprinkling of historical fact within the context of comedic situations. We learn why Mona Lisa’s smile might have been so discreet, what was going on inside the Trojan horse – and the importance of cake in the France of 1789.” (Telegraph)
Slightly more fun than your average history lesson. (Jack Whiting)
