Starring Cybill Shepherd in her film debut, The Last Picture Show is set during the 1950s in Anarene, a fictional Texan town of cold winters and scorching hot summers. There's not much to do, and the teenage population are fuelled by lust for the opposite sex - a recipe for disaster.

The ultimate rite of passage movie, the entwined story lines are summed up perfectly by Genevive, the all night waitress saying "One thing I know for sure is that a person can't sneeze in this town without somebody offering him a handkerchief...it's an awful small town for any kind of carrying on."

Originally winning two Oscars and re-released earlier this year, The Last Picture Show is the homage to Hollywood's classical era.

Tickets cost £5 (or £4 for FACT Members and concessions). You can buy tickets online, in person at Box Office, or by calling 0871 902 5737.
