Quite a bit of Buzz about this on Facebook at the moment:

Although odd it is being held on a Friday and not during School Holidays or anything. I wonder how many people will bunk off work or school to go along?

Yep, I know that RG mag covered it a bit in the recent Amiga issue. The BFI IMAX don't seem to have it listed yet on their website. I take your point about it not being on Saturday - I'm guessing that is because it might interfere with the IMAX's cinema takings - either that, or it was more expensive to hire it out on that day. It does look interesting. Here is a clip of the tests for using the IMAX screen(skip to the 0:59 minutes mark) :-

The gaming side closes at 6pm but the bar stays open till about 11pm, so the night carries on till then,

We will also be doing a pub quiz at the bar around 6pm and playing some 8bit and 16bit tunes(good old sid chip stuff)

Hope you guys can make it:-)
