    News: Screening of Withnail and I, plus a Q&A with Paul McGann!

    For many across the world, Withnail and I is the classic cult film that has defined generations. Whether you saw the original release in 1987, or if you like me discovered this incredible film as a University student, this is your chance to see one of the finest films known to humanity on the big screen once again!


    For one night only on Saturday 26th September, Odeon Liverpool ONE will be screening Bruce Robinson’s brilliantly witty comedy. When two out of work actors decide to take a break from London, their journey into the countryside is not quite what they expected. Full of memorable lines, an exquisite soundtrack and performances from an outstanding cast including Richard E. Grant and Paul McGann, this is truly one of the greatest films of modern times.


    If that wasn’t enough, actor Paul McGann will be answering questions from the audience about the film, in a live Q&A after the screening! Known for his roles in programmes such as The Monocled Mutineer, Paul’s outstanding performance in Withnail and I only adds further to his amazing career so far. If there was ever a question you wanted to ask about the film, this is your chance!


    Lewis Wright from Odeon Liverpool ONE added:

    “It’s great to have this cult classic on the big screen for one-night only, be part of the Liverpool Comedy Festival and work with Sam and the guys again, as our previous event was such a success. We are honoured to have Paul McGann attending to give fans an in-depth personal look into Withnail and I and very proud as this is an exclusive to Odeon Liverpool ONE. It will be a night not to be missed!”


    Running from Friday 18th September until Sunday 4th October, this exclusive screening of Withnail and I is part of the fabulous line-up of events in the Liverpool Comedy Festival.  Festival director Sam Avery from the Comedy Trust said:


    “We’re over the moon that this event has come together. This city has such a strong back catalogue of comic performers and it’s really important for Liverpool Comedy Festival to connect with that heritage. It’s been great working with Odeon Liverpool One after our successful collaboration last year for the Bill Hick’s screening”


    For those who love Withnail and I and those who still haven’t discovered this iconic film, this is a event not to be missed.


    Withnail and I, featuring a Q&A with Paul McGann will be shown at Odeon Liverpool ONE on Saturday 26th September at 7.30pm.
