Some ideas for a public event...
- Host a public event and sell tickets for a screening in your village hall or community centre.
- Host a movie night for your activity club. Screen Jaws for your scuba diving or kayaking club perhaps.
- Host a themed night whereby the guests dress up as the characters in the movie.
