We've often walked past the Rex Cinema on Rupert Street, late at night and wondered what exactly went on in there. With a bouncer on the door it didn't look like the type of place you could just wander on into to see the latest Harry Potter. Now we've done a little investigating and figured out its a 75 seat cinema, with a bar, and a very expensive price tag.

If you don't have £250 to spend on membership though and you like your rockumentories then you could be in for a bit of a treat this weekend. As part of the Outsider Festival Angie Bowie has been running film showings and parties at various locations across the capital including the Rex cinema. This Sunday it's the turn of the Dandy Warhol's movie Dig and the Ramones documentary End of the Century. It's at bargain at £6 and the fun kicks off nice and early at 6pm. Music will be provided from some of London's most established indie DJs and Angie Bowie herself will be hosting the whole event. If these particular films don't take your fancy then be sure to check out the rest of the festival which runs until mid May.
