James Bond week in Vancouver

East Vancouver's Rio Theatre is screeing a bunch of Bond movies this week offering a rare chance to see Ian Fleming's creation on the big screen, so if you're a fan of 007 you will want to see at least one or two of these vintage adventure films.

Tomorrow at 9 p.m. you can see Dr. No.  The 1962 film introduced Bond to the moviegoing public, and was Sean Connery's debut as the spy.  It also features Swedish actress Ursula Andress as the exceptionally named Honey Ryder.

On Friday you can see a double-bill of what are widely acknowledged as among the best Bond films.  From Russia With Love was the 2nd 007 film and features a famous fight scene on a train between Bond and a Russian agent played by Robert Shaw - and Goldfinger, in which Bond has to foil a plot to rob Fort Knox.

Each film is $10 in advance / $12 at the door, or $12 advance / $14 for a double bill.

The Rio is located at 1660 E. Broadway.  Click here for more info.  Have fun.
