Coming films at Kinokulture Oswestry independent cinema

Dear Blogger,

Message from James Bond, Kinokulture, Oswestry independent cinema.

We all need a laugh in these dark winter nights...

Off-beat comedy gold this Tuesday

THE HUNDRED YEAR OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED - this is a lovely tale about how a single man can create history, like Forrest from FORREST GUMP.

Allan is a mild-natured person, with an unknown fascinating past. He was the man behind the success of America's first atom bomb. He was the man who slipped the science to Russia and helped them build their own. He served in many wars, met many rulers from dictators to democrats, was pally with Einstein. He made history without even ever being mentioned in it.

But now he is on the run from his retirement home with a suitcase full of money and a gang of gangsters behind him. The question is: will he survive this last adventure of his life? 

This Tuesday Nov 21, 7.30pm. Tickets:
