Every month, TMINE lets you know what TV events the BFI is hosting
Time for our regular round-up of tele events at the BFI. Compared to February’s extravaganza, March is looking a bit anaemic for tele fans, with just a couple of events that are really geared up for Christie-lovers:
- 8th: Preview: Agatha Christie’s Poirot – Appointment with Death
- 8th: Preview: Agatha Christie’s Marple
With luck, there should also be a Q&A with David Suchet and Julia McKenzie to accompany the previews.
Torchwood lovers should also note that as part of the 23rd London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival, Captain Jack’s romantic escapades in season one will be shown at the Mediatheque at 1pm every Saturday and Sunday throughout March up until the 22nd (when the showing will be at 1.10pm).There’ll be clips from other shows, too, and the total runtime will be 45 minutes, with three playings per performanace. It’s free, too.
Lastly, as mentioned previously, for movie buffs, there’s a couple of Blade Runner showings, including a Q&A with Rutger Hauer. There are also ‘Femme Fatale’ and ‘The Vamp’ seasons, including Rita Hayworth in Gilda, Ava Gardner in The Killers, Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity, Kim Novak in Vertigo, Linda Fiorentino in The Last Seduction and Louise Brooks in Pandora’s Box (aka Die Büchse der Pandora).
In a change of policy this month, members’ priority postal, online and phone booking will all open at the same time: 11.30am on 2 February
Public booking opens 11:30am on 9 February
