As we celebrate Bond’s 50th Anniversary, The Wessex Autistic Society is delighted to announce it will be hosting a VIP screening of the new James Bond adventure ‘SKYFALL’ at Dorchester’s brand new ODEON Cinema Complex at Brewery Square on Thursday 25th October 2012. The charity has been fortunate to secure one of the regional charity screenings being shown across the country ahead of general release of the latest Bond film from the ever popular franchise.
Tony Armstrong, Community and Events Fundraiser at the Wessex Autistic Society comments; “We are delighted to have been chosen to show the latest Bond movie and use the event to raise vital funds for local people affected by autism. The film will be shown the day before general release and coincides with the special opening screenings of Dorchester’s state of the art, ODEON cinema complex which opens its doors to the public the following day. We are hoping people will see this as an opportunity to enjoy a preview cinema experience whilst enjoying the environment of the new three screen complex at the same time. Simply purchase your tickets from us and come and join in the fun on the evening of 25 th October.”
