[UK] ‘Thunderball’ Screening with Q&A @ The Cinema Museum
May 5 @ 6:30 pm – 10:00 pm

Starring Sir Sean Connery, Thunderball (1965) is one of the most acclaimed James Bond films, but it’s also the most controversial – thanks to the legal disputes that surrounded its release.

Writer Luis Abbou Planisi has published two books on James Bond that include interviews with Dame Judi Dench, Caroline Munro, Martine Beswick, John Glen and Valerie Leon among others. Luis will introduce Thunderball and talk about his latest book, published last December.

After the screening, Sylvan Mason – daughter of screenwriter of the film, Jack Whittingham – will join Luis for a Q&A about the film, her father and Bond. Sylvan not only knows behind-the-scenes details about the film and the subsequent court trial, but she also keeps, as Moneypenny would do, all the documents, unpublished photos and letters between her father, producer Kevin McClory and author Ian Fleming. For your ears and eyes only!

Doors open at 18.30, for a 19.00 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.
