FILM fans were in 007th heaven after being shaken and stirred on the red carpet for a special screening of new James Bond adventure Skyfall.

Hebden Bridge Picture House was decorated with iconic film scenes to celebrate 50 years of Bond and the arrival of the latest instalment of the franchise at the cinema, on New Road.

It was a full house as guests dressed up in tuxedos and cocktail dresses to see Daniel Craig in action.

Emma Green, from Hebden Royd Town Council, which runs the Picture House, said: “It was absolutely great.

“We just wanted to make it a little bit special. The town council has just taken over the Picture House and we are trying to create a bit of a buzz and do things a bit differently.

“A lot of people made the effort to dress up in suits and evening dresses.

“I think everybody had a really good time.”

Lots of people have been coming to see Skyfall on the big screen since it arrived at the Picture House on Friday night.

“We get the films a week or two later than the large cinemas but it shows that people are happy to wait and come to see them at the Picture House,” Emma said.

Skyfall’s run at the Picture House ends tonight, Thursday.

It has been a busy month for the cinema as there was also a full house for a screening of Emmerdale actor Dominic Brunt’s zombie film Before Dawn.

And the action-packed programme continues next week with a special screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Friday, November 30.

Cinema-goers are invited to attend in fancy dress and join in with the audience participation.
