Farenheit 451 (PG) & Burn After Reading (15)
Sun 11 Jan, 2.30pm & 4.45pm

Truffaut's take on Ray Bradbury's novel about a dour future society where books are dangerous, banned and burned by state-employed 'firemen' using flame throwers if discovered. Fahrenheit
451 is the temperature at which books are reduced to ashes.
Dir. Francios Truffaut UK 1966 1h 52m
A CIA agent (John Malkovich), sacked for a drink problem, retreats to the writing of his operations memoirs. Blackmail comedy ensues, and though these ridiculous proceedings were conceived at the same time as No Country, they provide a quite different kind of delight. Aided by inspired performances, the film is more superb Coen Brothers material.
