Showing this weekend but first a goodbye…

If only this was our office!

Hello blog friends! At the macrobert we are all sitting cosy in the office as the rain is lashing down outside! Not a great start to the weekend as half of us has arrived into work looking like damp squids!

Although we do have plenty of cake in the office as Laura; our lovely marketing manger, is leaving! Not that we are pleased to see her go, we just thought we would fatten her up before she starts her new job. So the blog today is dedicated to her and all the hard work she has done over the last 8 years! Laura has made many friends and she will be sorely missed. Good luck!

A must see!

So macrobert friends for a great film to watch this weekend check out American: The Bill Hicks Story. Bill Hicks has been considered by many to be the greatest comedian of the last 20 years. Bill was considered criminally unpatriotic at home for skewering the hypocrisies of the government and media, but he broke out internationally and stunned UK audiences. Bill is said to be much more than a comedian but an inspiration to millions. On the verge of conquering the USA, he was diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer. Fifteen years after his death his fascinating life story is told by those who knew him best. Made in close association with Bill’s family and friends, this movie features unprecedented access to unseen material and stunning animation techniques. The documentary film has received four stars from Love Film, Total Film, Daily Mirror, Empire and the Glasgow Evening News.

Check out some of the reviews below. For more information on the film or viewing times phone our fabulous box office staff on 01786 466666.

“An immersive, inventive delve into the life of a stand-up visionary.”

“Hysterically funny and deeply moving tribute to a true American outlaw.”
Daily Mirror

“A triumph of style and content…a fitting reminder of what Hicks accomplished in his short life, and what the brevity of that life cost the rest of us.”

“Hilarious and moving, its greatest triumph is in giving us a profound sense
of just what his death robbed us of”
