After a somewhat depressing selection of April movies (ironically, it was supposed to be Gay April), we are all ready for some laughs - in May we'll be showing silent comedies we haven't seen until now.

You will find the full schedule below, but first a brief reminder that all movie nights take place Fridays starting at 1 pm SLT at this location. You can find more information in the Odie Cinema Facebook group, or in the Google Plus collection.
