The UK's smallest cinema, the Bournemouth Colosseum, is hosting a tribute evening to the American actor Robin Williams.

Located in Westbourne's historic arcade, the unique cinema which seats just 20 people will screen clips of stand-up comedy performed by the comedian, as well as footage from old interviews and TV footage. The evening will finish with a viewing of one of the star’s most famous films.

Bournemouth Colosseum is housed beneath Lavish Life Coffee Bar and recently screened another very successful evening dedicated to the memory of actor Rik Mayall, who died in June this year.

Owner Paul Whitehouse said, “We intend the evening to be a real celebration of Robin William’s life and there is likely to be much laughter. Drinks will be served from 7pm on Saturday 30th August and the film clips will be shown from 7.30pm. We are confident that the evening will be a sell out and I would urge anyone interested in attending to book early.”

"In September we are going to be honouring another Hollywood legend and will be screening a number of films over a period of several nights in memory of Lauren Bacall.”

Tickets for the Robin Williams tribute evening are priced at £10. For more information, or to book, call 01202 769092
