He is also the star of BBC Radio 5Live, where he presents Kermode and Mayo's Film Reviews with Simon Mayo on Friday afternoons.

Mr Kermode will be talking about his new book 'The Good, The Bad & The Multiplex' at the cinema in St Andrew's Street from 7pm on Monday, November 28, followed by a Q&A session and book signing.
