Monday 23 – Confessions of a Dangerous Mind 8pm @ Tabac

Monday evenings no longer need be boring. Tabac on Bold Street offers the means of easing into the week with a regular movie night in their cosy candlelit room, with a drink, and maybe some tapas to share. This week’s screening, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, is a surreal biographical film based on the memoir of Chuck Barris, a popular game show host/producer who claimed to have also been an assassin for the CIA. Worth investigating.
