For your chance to be a part of the audience, please reply by Friday 7th January with your details (name, email address noted, contact telephone number) and we’ll get it organised. Just a reminder that this film is a Certificate 18, and sadly we can’t have tickets issued for under 18’s.

Also coming up this year, other than a fantastic selection of films, is our quiz night. Think you know your De Niros from your DeCaprios? Your Laurel from your Hardy?

The singer-songwriter Gerry Rafferty, whose songs such as Stuck in the Middle with You, Baker Street and Get it Right Next Time soundtracked the 1970s, has died aged 63 after a long illness.

His family said he died at home peacefully with his daughter Martha this morning.

The Scot was born in Paisley, near Glasgow, played with Billy Connolly’sfolk outfit the Humblebums, and co-founded the soft-rock group Stealer’s Wheel, before enjoying a successful solo career. Baker Street, released in 1978, was still netting him £80,000 a year more than 30 years later.
