Context.  Insight and insider knowledge.  Debate and discussion.

We delight in bringing you ‘added value’ screenings, with the chance to see more, learn more, and discuss further. 

The Lexi is the perfect venue for intimate Q&As and panel discussions.   Our guests love the place, and they also appreciate that our audiences tend to know their stuff and ask intelligent, original and entertaining questions!   In addtion to our own on-site Q&As we regularly broadcast live-by-satellite Q&As and introductions.

It is 200 years since an 18 year old sprig of a woman, Mary Shelley, wrote Frankenstein in response to a challenge to enliven a sodden holiday.  Although the book has inspired all manner of interpretations, one of the most enduring is the 1931 black and white film directed by James Whale, with Boris Karloff immortalising the Creature.  For our money, this is the defining screen version!  (And it is rare to be able to show this on a big screen nowadays.)
