The broadcasting personality is appearing at the University of Hertfordshire in Hatfield to treat audiences to a journey across the modern cinematic landscape.

In honour of his new book Hatchet Job, Love Movies, Hate Critics, Kermode will ask the question: ‘Who needs the professionals now that everyone’s a critic?’. He will also take part in a Q&A and sign books after the event.

Owner of the soon-to-be opened St Albans cinema James Hannaway will also be there to share the progress of the former Odeon site in London Road.
