This year we’ll be 30 years old - we’re in good company!

So, it was 30 years ago in June that Watershed screened its first film. I have no idea what that film was, though I expect someone upstairs does. Maybe we’ll show it again.

Or maybe we’ll show one of the other gems from 1982! We’ll definitely have to dress-up - big hair, sweatbands, long fingers or orange afros, there’s lots to choose from! Here are some of our favourite films from 1982:

E.T. (Rachel’s favourite)

Tootsie (Benjie and Ellie’s number 1)

Dark Crystal (Alan’s Allstar choice)

Annie

Rambo

Bladerunner (Paul’s pick of the pops)

Fanny and Alexander (Pam’s Greatest Hit)

Officer and a Gentleman

Victor Victoria (Elen’s Bee’s Knees)

What else should be in the running as our Film of 1982?

Two hot chaps in a hot film opening today. Intrigue, thrills and suspense. Woo-hoo!

I loved the book (if loved is the right word!). So, I’m excited about this adaptation. Nervous too - will they ruin it?? But I do trust Lynne Ramsay and Tilda Swinton, so fingers crossed.

I wonder if we have one of the nicest #ViewFromMyDesk in the whole of Bristol? Today tug-boats went past; a couple of swans and loads of shorts and ice-cream wearing locals. Magic.

From the Box Office With Love

So, Tinker, Tailor looks like another King’s Speech - sell out screenings all weekend! Yay! But unlike King’s Speech it’s bringing with it a degree of sartorial style that makes the September Issue look like the Big Issue.

So, the Front of House Dept was suitably dressed (SUITably, see?) to celebrate. It went down well with our customers - Guy’s jaw dropped, Andrew asked if we’d do explorers next and one lady wanted to know if she could buy my hat.

Here we are, being too cool for school:

Troll Hunter

It isn’t often that all the cinema ushers like a film, but every one I’ve spoken to has rated Troll Hunter. Nev says ‘Blair Witch crossed with Jurassic Park’. It’s one I really want to see, but won’t get a chance this week. Here’s hoping I sort myself out in time to catch its second week!

The View From the Box Office

Mostly Box Office work is lots of tumbleweed and dust, punctuated by frenzied activity before the start of every film.

As there’s only so much tumbleweed-farming and dusting that we can do, we’ve decided to have a group blog, here on Tumblr.

There are lots of us tucked into the corner of the foyer. As we get used to Tumblr we’ll be sharing our favourite clips (Troll 2, anyone?), film reviews, thoughts, musings and gossip from our bit of Bristol.

All of this is completely separate to the upstairs crew who run the Official Watershed website. We are the underground. The underwatershed.
