B#gger!!! - I wish I'd know about this earlier :-(.
I also wish (the now quite old) Babakiueria (“Barbecue Area”) was included - I'd love for my kids to see it.

Good luck with the night Michael

What a great idea for an event! What a pity I will be back from travel that night. Let us know if there is another way or opportunity to see some of the films afterwards. Thanks Lea
