EVENTS Centenary Screening: Sweet Smell of Success Presented by Radio 4’s Francine Stock // 3 Apr The Counterfeit Stones // 7 Apr The Counterfeit Stones celebrate their 25th anniversary in 2016 with yet another “Sham Rock” experience. Their skilfullymixed cocktail of classic hits, retro costume and humour continues to intoxicate young and old alike - 100% proof that a good shot always hits the target. This faking masterpiece, hilariously “mockumenting” the history of the Rolling Stones from 1962, will take you back if you were there; or make you wish you were, if you weren’t. Why pay a fortune to see originals as ants in a megadome, when for a fraction of the price you can smell the sweat of bogus brilliance? Francine Stock is the presenter of Radio 4’s Film Programme. Francine has chosen her favourite film, Alexander Mackendrick’s seminal tale Sweet Smell of Success (1957, starring Burt Lancaster and Tony Curtis). She will introduce the film and lead a discussion after the screening. Is it one of the best noir crime thrillers ever made? 7.30pm. Price: £22 The Capitol Horsham, North Street, Horsham RH12 1RG / 01403 750220 7pm. Price: £12.50 The Picture House, High Street, Uckfield TN22 1AS / 01825 764909 Dogs Don’t Do Ballet // 8-9 Apr Biff is a dog, but he’s not your usual kind of dog. Instead of chasing sticks and fetching newspapers, Biff loves tutus, tiaras and ballet! Watch as Biff sneaks into the class of the fearsome ballet teacher, Miss Polly, practises pirouettes in the park and finally gets to go the ballet. Featuring music from Fauré, Elgar and Tchaikovsky, this ballet is an ideal introduction for young children to classical music. Join Ballet Black for their first family ballet, based on the best-selling book by Anna Kemp and choreographed by Christopher Marney. It’s full of fun, magic and one very special dog!
