1. 'Quantum of Solace' Yarmouth Regional Screening Announced

    By Devin Zydel on 2008-10-15

    A regional screening for Quantum of Solace is scheduled to take place at Yarmouth’s Hollywood Cinema on Thursday, 30 October at 7:30pm.

    The screening will take place one day before the latest James Bond film goes on general release in the UK, reports EDP24. The event is being organized in aid of Palliative Care East, an appeal to build a palliative care centre at Gorleston’s James Paget University Hospital.

    Distributor Sony has imposed strict measures on the event, including the hiring of security guards, to prevent any chance of pirating.

    ‘We’re so pleased to be allowed to have this screening for the appeal,’ said Tony Mallion of BBC Radio Norfolk, who is a patron of the JPH appeal and organiser of the event.

    He continued: ‘Naturally we have to comply with the strict conditions they set down. But it does seem a bit over the top. People are coming to enjoy a great night out for a good cause, not to sit with video cameras or mobile phones trying to make bootleg copies.’

    ‘We want to make money for the appeal and sadly this condition means that £300 has to go to pay for the two guards and the hire of their special night goggles.’

    ‘It will add to the glamour and excitement though, to think we’re all being treated as potential spies and pirates.’

    Tickets to this Quantum of Solace screening are still available, priced at £15 and £10. Phone 01493 852600 for additional details.
