The first film in the Maths at the Movies series was screened last night to a full house. This murder mystery set in the Oxford mathematical community of 1993 kept the audience guessing to the end – and not just about why the scriptwriters saw fit to change Fermat to Bormat!
Following on from this film we are showing 21 on Thursday 9 April 5.45pm. Another gripping tale, this time based on the true story of how some gifted mathematics students were coached not only in playing blackjack but in all the other skills needed to be big winners in Las Vegas. Why did they do it – to get rich quick, to get into medical school or just because they could?
There are still tickets available for 21 but don’t leave it too late in case we repeat yesterday’s sucess! Visit www.filmhousecinema.com to book tickets online.
