FURTHER to our story was last week about the National Film and Sound Archive’s screening of a a very silly family-friendly film, “Bill,” news is to hand that the Arc Cinema has added extra screenings to its schedule.
The adventure-comedy film from the team behind the hit TV series “Horrible Histories” follows lute player Bill Shakespeare as he leaves his home to follow his dream as a writer in London, and is billed as “a tale of murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth I.”
