You can see a barnstorming performance (literally) from Richard Burton in 1976 film classic Equus on Thursday 30 July -- with an introduction from Iain Baird, our Curator of Television (and grandson of Iain Logie Baird, the inventor of television).

On Saturday 1 August, we're bringing out the triple projectors again for a screening of This Is Cinerama. We're one of the only places left in the world that you can see this super-widescreen slice of 1950s Americana.

Also on Saturday, our reimagined Bite The Mango season of world cinema explodes into life with 1970s all-action Indian epic Sholay (above). There's much more to come from Bite The Mango, including the critically-acclaimed Shirin, and a dedicated weekend in late September.

Plus our calendar of summer 2009 family events continues, including Harry Potter weekends for the little wizard or witch in your family.
