Malton Palace Cinema presents John le Carré live in:
AN EVENING WITH GEORGE SMILEY
In aid of Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors without Borders (MSF)
Live from London’s Royal Festival Hall, join us for a unique celebration of John le Carré’s work as he discusses the full breadth of his career, and reflects on the continuing story of his most famous creation, the tubby, bespectacled spy, George Smiley. Featuring readings from his new novel “A Legacy of Spies“, and a rare question and answer session, this will be an unmissable opportunity to experience the author direct and in his own words. For those unable to make it to London’s Southbank, the event is being broadcast live to cinemas across the UK and Europe, including the Palace Cinema in Malton.
Thursday 7th September 2017 at 7:30pm in Screen 1. Tickets: Full £13 Concessions £11
BOOKING NOW OPEN. Telephone the Box Office on 01653 600 008 0r visit the Palace Cinema website.
“A Legacy of Spies” will be published on 6 September at £13.99. This is the first novel in over twenty-five years to feature George Smiley, le Carré’s most beloved character.
Peter Guillam, staunch colleague and disciple of George Smiley of the British Secret Service, otherwise known as the Circus, is living out his old age on the family farmstead on the south coast of Brittany when a letter from his old Service summons him to London. The reason? His Cold War past has come back to claim him. Intelligence operations that were once the toast of secret London, and involved such characters as Alec Leamas, Jim Prideaux, George Smiley and Peter Guillam himself, are to be scrutinised under disturbing criteria by a generation with no memory of the Cold War and no patience with its justifications.
Interweaving past with present so that each may tell its own intense story, John le Carré has spun a single plot as ingenious and thrilling as the two predecessors on which it looks back: The Spy Who Came in from the Cold and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
