Coming Soon to a Fleapit Near You: Cary Grant Comes Home For The Weekend

The Fleapit marquee is coming along nicely – getting ready for showing some Cary Grant related material in the run up to the Cary Grant Comes Home For the Weekend Festival.

Fleapit Now Showing Cary Grant

Decorating the marquee and signage.

You get to play projectionist: you are invited to get the cinema ready by dimming the lights, opening the curtains and queuing the films, which include a selection of vintage 1950s Pearl & Dean advertising (thanks to Peter Seabrook-Harris for permissions), trailers for Arsenic and Old Lace and North by Northwest (the festival gala double bill) and a film about Archie Leach’s Pastry Fork.

The next stage is for Tarim to fit LED lights to the marquee and auditorium, complete the electronics, give the auditorium one final coat of paint and Bob’s your Auntie’s live-in lover. I can’t wait to see the marquee in situ on the rest of the cinema!
