Film club replaces murderer movie with cute pussy screening

Stanley’s Film Club has made a late switch of its screening this week, with tomorrow night’s programme now being A Street Cat Named Bob.

The film club, based at South Norwood’s Stanley Halls, took the decision following last week’s murders at Westminster. Their originally scheduled movie, the Czech film noir I, Olga, had already been promoted with a description which some might have felt, in any case, was a tad on the crass side of insensitive: “A lonely young lesbian turns into a mass murderer”.

In an announcement to the club’s mailing list put out last night, the organisers said, “In light of recent events, we have decided to cancel our screening of I, Olga this Wednesday due to the subject matter of the film.

“Instead, audiences will be treated to a screening of feel good film A Street Cat Named Bob, in partnership with SNARL.”

SNARL is the South Norwood animal rescue charity which has been actively involved in trying to track down the person, or people, behind the outbreak of killings of family pets around south London, attributed to the “Croydon Cat Killer”.

“We have just put tickets on sale for our replacement film, A Street Cat Named Bob, which we hope will provide the feel-good fix that everyone needs right now,” a film club spokeswoman said.

Based on an international best-selling book, the film has a fantastic cast including Luke Treadaway, Joanne Froggatt, Anthony Head and Bob the Cat (as himself), while confronting the harsh realities of homelessness in London.

A Street Cat Named Bob is being screened at the Stanley Halls (12 South Norwood Hill, London, SE25 6AB) tomorrow, March 29, doors open 7pm.

Tickets are £8, or £6 for members, or £5 for under-18s. To book, click here.
