Thanks for the heads up about this, it's greatly appreciated.

Went for the 9pm screening as I hope everyone involved will be drunk.

Went for the 6.30pm screening because I'm not being in the same cinema as Noddy Tomkey. Not after last time.* If anyone is going then and fancies meeting up then let me know, as I love every one of you. Apart from Noddy Tomkey, obviously.**











*Or because the missus works early shifts and wouldn't be able to make the latter screening. It's one or the other.

** I've no idea why I'm doing this to you Noddy. Sorry!

Shoulders?-Stomach!

A meet would be good and surely natural, considering the city and event.

Two's for goose!

Earlier showing would work better for a meet, so I'll see if I can switch tix, if anyone gives a flying fuck.

Tickets for the 9pm screening are still available, or you could turn up to the six thirty pm screening and beat me near to death and steal my ticket.

I did give this some serious consideration.. the late showing that is.. not the mugging attempt. But no.

Look forward to your detailed blow by blow account of the evening.

Went to the 9pm show last night. Brilliant atmosphere and one of the most enjoyable screenings of any event I've ever attended. The bulk of the audience were surprisingly young (must've been toddlers when it was first aired) and enthusiastic in a good way. I quietly spared a thought to Sydward Lartle who would have seethed like an apoplectic tomato at their enjoyment of the film. It really felt like an exclusive old school 20th century experience that fans will talk about in hushed tones in years to come.

Does anyone remember what that hilarious first question was in the 9pm showing?

Re: Oxide Ghosts screening in London

It was something like, did they suspect anything of Rolf Harris' crimes when they interviewed him in Brass Eye and consequently could they be accused of having "cum on their hands"?

I'm generally ambivalent about smartarses in the audience but I think it was the second half of a longer question and was funny at the time, honest. Surprising since I'd just spent 90 minutes in fairly constant amusement at the film itself and I didn't think I had the stamina for that anymore. I don't know what proportion of the unseen material Oxide Ghosts represents but it feels like there could be an infinite amount more stashed away; I got the impression that Morris and colleagues had enviably landed themselves in a situation and show format that allowed them to incorporate almost any kind of humour (real-life encroaching stunts, Morris dressing up as a character, technical pastiche etc) to unerringly good results.

A few other comments here said they thought this material wasn't as sharp as in the original programme, which may well be right. For me I think I've not fully appreciated the sharpness of the original programme (I thought TDT was the bigger masterpiece) and seeing this film has now raised it, for the next rewatch.

At the end of the Q & A, Cummings reeled off his and CM's Brasseye music list that was their muse and what they used in the show. He has threatened to make a Spotify fing.
