As per message and email Frankie can no longer attend tonight which means that the meetup needs coordinating. Please change your rsvp if you are no longer attending.
Those that can still make it - use the meetup point at the top of the escalator and get tickets (aim for B14 seat) beforehand. Sorry I had to cancel my appearance at such short notice...
This time is now definite @ 8:50 which means a start time of about 9:20 and at 110 minutes that means the movie will finish at 11:10 I hope that suits people ok.
Neil Jordan is of course the director of Interview With The Vampire, and returns to that genre with Byzantium, which stars Gemma Arterton and one of my favourite young actresses, Saoirse Ronan. As mother and daughter vampirette they are hiding out at the seaside from The Brotherhood (of vampires) who disapprove of their very existence and I assume are lead by Jonny Lee Miller. Sam Riley is also in this but not sure what his role is.
Empire magazine gives this 8/10 and describes it as mixture of the wistful and the brutal, and a melancholic, strange picture.
