We kick off our 'British Spy Weekend' by celebrating the 50th Anniversary of You Only Live Twice. YOLT is the 5th film in the James Bond series and the fifth to star Sean Connery as MI6 agent 007.

The film's screenplay was written by Roald Dahl, and lightly based on Ian Fleming's 1964 novel of the same name.

In the film, Bond is dispatched to Japan after American and Russian spacecraft disappear mysteriously in orbit. With one side blaming the other, and an American moonshot just a few days away, Bond goes undercover on a remote Japanese island with local agent Kissy Suzuki, to find the perpetrators, bringing him face to face with Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the head of SPECTRE.

This film reveals the features of Blofeld, who was previously a partially-unseen character

As the 'middle-child' of our 'British Spy Weekend' movie series, we present the first in this ongoing spy franchise.

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

We wrap up our 'British Spy Movie Weekend' with this smashing shagadelic party as Mike Myers and Elizabeth Hurley star in the first of his a non-stop, hilarious comedy adventure franchise. Frozen in the '60s, secret agent Austin Powers (Myers) is thawed back into action to once again battle his archenemy Dr. Evil. With his sexy sidekick Ms. Kensington (Hurley), Austin must stop Dr. Evil's outrageous plot to control the world.

You Only Live Twice (being shown in our theatre on Sept 28 at 7pm) is an iconic representation of the collective memory of what Bond films represented to that first generation 007 fan. Mike Myers certainly conveyed that with his Austin Powers films, which, while serving as a take-off of the ‘60s spy genre in general, certainly takes much of its inspiration from YOLT (Bond fans love their acronyms).

Ausitn Powers is a wacky, far-out trip you won't forget.

From the mind of Mel Brooks, it’s a night of ‘Abby Normal’ fun!

Frederick Frankenstein detests his family history but ultimately can't resist the temptation to follow in his infamous grandfather's footsteps.
Made with obvious affection for the original, Young Frankenstein is a riotously silly spoof featuring a fantastic performance by Gene Wilder.
