Movies with pulling power will be attracting real ale lovers to a two-day event this weekend.
The Astor Theatre Beer Festival on Friday, August 15 and Saturday, August 16 will also feature guest ales from the north east of England, created by award winning Cullercoats Brewery.
From closer to home there will also be beers supplied by the Ripple and Tide and Time breweries.
The 10pm big-screen film on Friday night will be The Blues Brothers and on Saturday it will be Stop Making Sense, a concert by the band Talking Heads.
The festival is the brainchild of Astor’s director James Tillitt. His colleague Freddie Middleton is behind the musical line-up.
Live music on Friday will be provided by local heroes to Deal, Gentlemen of Few, and on Saturday the guests are Joan Coffey and Spekki Chris.
Astor Theatre Beer Festival runs from 6pm to midnight on Friday, August 15 and continues from 2pm until midnight on Saturday, August 16 at the Astor Theatre, Deal. Entry costs £3. Beer tokens cost £10 for five half-pints. Visit www.theastor.org or call 01304 370220.
