About the event

Come join us at The Mess Room and enjoy great films in good company as we launch our informal, social, film screenings at The Mess Room. We'll be getting out our projector, bringing in some extra chairs and playing some fabulous movies, specifically chosen by film buff, Julia. We're launching with the absolutely brilliant cult classic 'Withnail and I'.

There'll be time to chat about the film before and after, a short interval, and the bar will be open throughout. We'll even be bringing out popcorn! Limited seats available.

Free entry, (although we obviously expect anyone coming to watch the film, to buy at least a couple of drinks!) If you would like to guarantee a seat, you can book in advance and there is a deposit of £10 per person, which is redeemable for drinks on the night. This is an event for film lovers, and we ask that you refrain from general chat whilst the film is playing. Film interaction however, is more than encouraged!

Bar Open: 6.45pm Film Start Time: 7.45pm Bar Closes: 11pm

Important Information Over 18s only. Please be aware we have a Challenge 21 policy and anyone who appears to be under 21 years of age will be asked for photo ID. Seat reservation deposits are refundable (minus fees) within 7 days of the event. After this, we may refund at our discretion. Any guests who appears inebriated will be refused entry. Management decision is final.

Withnail & I

Bruce Robinson's celebrated cult comedy starring Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann. It's the end of the 1960s and two out-of-work actors, Withnail (Grant) and 'I' (McGann), subsist on a diet of booze, drugs and fags in their revolting Camden flat. In order to escape the depressing nexus of visits from their dealer and the months of untouched washing-up, they escape to the country, with the intention of getting some R and R at a cottage owned by Withnail's uncle Monty (Richard Griffiths). However, things do not exactly go as planned, Withnail being particularly unsuited to the quiet social mores of countrypeople. The pair's friendship starts to become sorely tested amid the vicissitudes of their 'holiday'. More ominously, uncle Monty appears in person seemingly with something of an eye for 'I'.

Director: Bruce Robinson Runtime: 103 Certification: 15 Production Year: 1987
