'Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict' Film Screening - Friday 7th July 2017
RaM Films, in association with The Centre for Computing History, is proud to announce the first public screening of Andy Remic's nostalgic ZX Spectrum documentary feature film, Memoirs of a Spectrum Addict.
The film explores the history of the Spectrum, contains actor-led vignettes harking back to the 1980s – remember opening your Spectrum from under the Christmas tree in 1984? – and interviews major industry figures of the day, developers, graphic artists, publishers and dedicated fans.
Starring such notable industry legends as The Oliver Twins, Clive Townsend, Mark R. Jones, Jon Hare, Jim Bagley, Steve Turner, Oliver Frey, Rich Stevenson, Roger Kean, Mev Dinc, Simon Butler, Jas Austin, and the original designer of the Spectrum – Rick Dickinson – the film offers insights into early Spectrum memories, classic games, software piracy, Spectrum hardware, individual developments, and the future of this great system.
The movie was funded by fans through a successful Kickstarter project.
The Centre will open at 6pm and close at 10pm, and our exhibits will be up and running as usual. With the screening at 7pm, that leaves plenty of time for retro gaming and nostalgic chat!
Running length: 2hrs 20 minutes.
Rated PG - some mild language.
Update, 07/07/2017 - Due to a family crisis, Director Andy Remic will not know be attending tonight's screening. However, information will be passed out to allow viewers to contact him with questions and feedback about the movie.
Remember - All proceeds go to support our Computing Museum!
