Posted because I need recuperation from the horrors of multiplex monster movie fallout...

It's also Orange Wednesday 241 people, so if you want to get half-price tickets then don't buy your ticket in advance, instead turn up brandishing a suitable code on your mobile, and we'll pair you up on a first-come first-served basis....
If you are not on Orange, I've pasted the details of how to sort this out at the bottom of this listing.

Let's meet in the Duke of York bar (it's upstairs) from 6pm, heading into the auditorium about 6.15 or so.  De-brief / movie chatter over compulsory curry just up the road at Shahi Tandoori directly after the film - you know you want to ;-)

Film blurb from DoY website

After all the successful Ripley movies, adapting one of Patricia Highsmith’s most complex novels was always going to be a tough call, but DRIVE screenwriter Hossein Amini pulls it off superbly with his directorial debut.

The plot centres on Colette and Chester MacFarland (Dunst, MELANCHOLIA, and Mortensen, THE ROAD), sophisticated tourists in 1960s Greece, where they befriend a young chancer named Rydal (Isaac, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIES). When Rydal – already clearly smitten with the glamorous Colette – witnesses Chester disposing of a dead mobster, things take the first of several sinister turns in this tense psychological thriller.

Against the luminous backdrop of a Greek summer, Rydal and the MacFarlands dance elegantly around their deeper motives, and the narrative nuances are disarmingly executed.

How to get a 241 code 

If your mobile phone is on the Orange network already, then it’s easy peasy – just text ‘film’ to the number 241. We suggest doing this several days in advance of Wednesday, as Orange get very busy on the day itself.

If you are not on Orange, then you’ve several choices. All involving buying an Orange ‘Pay As You Go’ SIM card – you can get these for £1 in Poundland or most supermarkets (they are typically right by the till at the exit). Then either put it temporarily into your existing mobile phone OR put it permanently into an old mobile – I use my last mobile phone, which I keep in the car for emergencies. Alternatively, you can buy a new cheap mobile just for this purpose (several members have done this for under a fiver). Next, you’ll need to top-up your Orange pay-as-you-go mobile with some credit - £5 will last for ages. Then follow the instructions for existing Orange users, as above; each text you send costs 35p, so £5 of credit effectively buys you 14 half-price cinema codes.

    The curry after mirrored the film really - over-coloured and a bit woosy in terms of heat/bite - but it was still a perfectly watchable yarn, and the post-movie dinner social was fabulous, so thank you all for indulging my curry addiction once again :-) Think we'll try a different one next time though....x

    Apologies for disappearing without saying goodbye to anyone! I had a bunch of frantic messages from my housemate who'd somehow managed to lock himself out. Loved the movie. :)
