James Bond comes out of retirement

James Bond comes out of retirement

JAMES BOND returns to Henley next Thursday when No Time To Die opens at the Regal Picturehouse cinema.

There are eight showings a day at the Boroma Way venue for the first week of the film’s release.

Starring Daniel Craig in his final outing as 007, No Time To Die finds Bond enjoying a tranquil life in Jamaica, having retired from active service.

But his peaceful existence ends up being short-lived when his old friend Felix Leiter from the CIA turns up asking for help.

The mission to rescue a kidnapped scientist turns out to be far more treacherous than expected, putting Bond on the trail of a mysterious villain armed with a dangerous new technology.

Showing from today (Friday) is Rose Plays Julie, starring Ann Skelly as a young woman who decides to track down her birth parents, with unpredictable consequences.

Also showing is Joseph Losey’s classic 1963 British drama The Servant, with a screenplay by Harold Pinter, about an indolent young man who hires a manservant only to find he has bitten off more than he can chew.

The other new film showing this week, The Lost Leonardo, is a 2021 documentary telling the story of the Salvator Mundi, the most expensive painting ever sold at auction.
