    Does anyone know any more info about this event? I had a look on the website and it doesn't say a lot about it, tickets seem to be £10 but i was wondering what happens at something like this, will David walliams come and introduce it and then they will show the film? the reason i ask is because on the website it is not clear that they are even showing the film.

    Show: Martini Bond: Hunt for the spy who loved her mum
    Venue: <a href="http://camdenfringe.com/index.php?id=3&displaydate=2012-08-17"; target="_blank">The Camdem Fringe Festival</a>, London, UK
    Dates: Various

    Bond is back like you’ve never seen her before, thanks to a Wimbledon playwright Lyndsey Jones. She was inspired to write the comedy during this, James Bond’s 50th anniversary. She said: "The play celebrates James Bond but also looks at the consequences of his womanising ways. I just wondered what a daughter of Bond would be like. After all, she would have grown up in single parent household with a Bond girl for a mother. So would she shoot to kill or just go shopping for glamorous clothes?"

    Martini Bond's memories have been shaken but not stirred. She’d never thought of meeting her dad. Now he is missing presumed dead after Franken von Banken spliced villain DNA with the god particle in a quest to rule the world. Will Martini find her dad and save the planet? Or will she go shopping? After all, the family motto was live and let die.

    Event: "James Bond No. #1: Sean Connery's 007" Film Season
    Location: IFC Center, 323 Sixth Avenue at West Third Street, New York City, NY, USA
    Dates: Friday 31st August 31 to Thursday 6th September 2012

    To celebrate 50 years of Bond movies, IFC is paying tribute to the man who started it all. Outfitted with the coolest gadgets, the driest martinis (shaken, not stirred) and the curviest co-stars, Sean Connery created one of the screen’s most indelible and iconic characters. Although succeeded by other actors, on his golden anniversary, Connery’s effortlessly suave superspy remains the gold standard. After all, you never forget your first Bond.

    Toronto will be James Bond Central from October 26, 2012 to Jan 20, 2013

    Not only this, http://tiff.net/exhibitionspagefortesting/upcoming
    - the Barbican Designing 007 – Fifty Years of James Bond Style - coming to Toronto's Tiff Bell Lightbox for an extended stay

    but also this:

    JAMES BOND AT TIFF BELL LIGHTBOX THIS FALL
    Three film programmes and public and school workshops to accompany the
    North American premiere of Designing 007: Fifty Years of Bond Style at Tiff Bell
    Lightbox, running from October 26, 2012 to January 20, 2013.

    http://s3.amazonaws.com/tiff-prod/press_releases/146/JAMES BOND AT TIFF BELL LIGHTBOX THIS FALL_original.pdf?1346250301

    Coincident with the Designing 007 exhibtion, all 22 Bond films will be shown at the Tiff Bell Lightbox during the show's run.

    Also, Tiff is giving us a Bond vs Blofeld marathon. All 6 Blofeld films, FRLW, TB, YOLT, OHMSS, DAF and FYEO, will play in a back-to-back marathon screening from Friday October 26th at 7pm to Saturday Oct 27th at 1pm. So that's roughly 13-14 hours worth of films jammed into an 18 hour window, so I guess we get short respites between showings.

    Still more. John Glen pops by Monday December 10th for a Q & A and a special screening of OP.

    And more - Beyond Bond: The Other Secret Agents, Nov 9th to Jan 18, 2013, will focus on the wave of spy films that popped up in the wake of 007. Including serious fare such as the Ipcress File and 3 Days of the Condor, plus campier stuff such as Modesty Blaise

    Plus a whole bunch of school workshops for students, grades 7-12. Awesome. Wish we had got such day trips when I was in high school.

    Full details on everything, in the press release linked above (2nd link)

    Event: "Dr. No" & "Goldfinger" Screenings

    Date: Saturday 29th September 2012
    Time: 18:00 & 20:30

    The landmark Loew's movie palace in Jersey City, New Jersey will present two James Bond classics on Saturday 29th September: Dr. No and Goldfinger, both starring Sean Connery.

    The Loew's is one of America's most historic theaters and has been painstakingly restored to its original glory. There is no better place to enjoy classic movies on the big screen- and it's only minutes from midtown Manhattan.

    Cinema Retro editor-in-chief Lee Pfeiffer, co-author of The Essential James Bond, will introduce both films. Dr. No goes on at 6:00 PM and Goldfinger follows at 8:30 PM.

    Here's the latest from the Barbican Designing 007, in Toronto. Opens next week Friday Oct 26 to Sun Jan. 20, 2013. 13 weeks total.
    And as mentioned all 22 films will be given at least one screening over the run. Some will get as many as 4 screenings. There are single showings, double bills, a few triple bills and an opening-weekend marathon, overnight, 6-film showing of all the Blofeld Bonds. You know what they are.
    Here's the link to the film showtimes, listed by film.
    http://tiff.net/filmsandschedules/tiffbelllightbox/2012/2440002191

    I count 54 showings in all. That's a lot of Bond big-screen viewing.
    FRWL, GF and TB, get the most love with 4 showings each.
    DN, YOLT, DAF, LALD, TSWLM, FYEO and AVTAK get 3 showings each.
    OHMSS, TMWTGG, MR, OP, TLD, LTK,GE, CR and QoS get 2 showings each
    TND, TWINE and DAD get one showing each
    One can also catch big-screen showings of SF too while the event is in town. SF opens Nov 9th.

    Lindy Hemming will do an intro to DN, while John Glenn will do Q & A prior to one of the OP showings.

    =This link provides the chronological listing by date, of all films, (Bond and non-Bond) which will show during the Event's run.
    http://tiff.net/calendar

    Of note, from the Beyond Bond: The other Secret Agents series, the '60s Bulldog Drummond classic, Deadlier Than the Male, will get the big-screen treatment at 9pm on Friday Decemeber 14. I've also made note of Modesty Blaise. The Sean Connery rarity Zardoz is also playing on Dec 18th, although I'm not sure that this film is part of the Other Secret Agents series.

    Bump. These screeings above are going over real well. Most of the showings are packed ,especially on the weekend as people take advantage of the movie/exhibit combo price of $22.00, followed by specially prepared authetic Bond martini's in the lounge after, if you want.
    The first 7 films look especially good as they are screening the perfectly restored and pristine versions. These old films display like they were released last year, they look that good. Good to know if the showings come by your town.

    Hi all

    Apologies if this has already been posted elsewhere or should be somewhere else....

    I just had an email from the Royal Albert Hall confirming a concert on 4th October this year performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, titled "The very best of John Barry".
    Tickets are immediately on sale so get over to their website if you're interested.

    I had the pleasure of attending the John Barry Memorial Concert performed by the RPO at the same venue; if it's half as good as that then it's a wonderful evening.

    Event: <a href="http://archive.viff.org/e-blasts/vancity-theatre/2013/08/BondPR.html#gala"; target="_blank">007 Reloaded: Bond vs Bond</a>
    Location: VanCity Theatre, Vancouver, Canada
    Date: Friday 23re August 2013 onwards
    Time: Various

    Actors come and go but Bond – like diamonds – goes on forever. His biennial escapades stretch back half a century, all the way to the Cuban Missile Crisis, and span nine US Presidents.

    This 20-film retrospective is designed to showcase not only the changing face of Britain’s most famous secret agent, in all six of his incarnations from Sean Connery through to Daniel Craig, but also to suggest how Bond movies have changed and stayed the same as they mirror sometimes subtle shifts in attitudes towards sex, violence, nuclear weapons, terrorism, Communism, Capitalism, and, yes, good old/bad old hedonism.

    We’re also pleased to present an exhibition of vintage posters and Bond memorabilia courtesy of collector Murray Gillespie, who will be on hand to introduce many of the screenings.

    Want to introduce 007 to your kids? Look for the weekend matinees Aug 24, 25, 31 and Sept 1. (Evening shows are adults only, sorry!).
