MOVIEGOERS are invited to don a mask and cape to go and see tomorrow's Friday Night Movie at the Maltings Arts Theatre in St Albans.

The theatre is showing The Watchmen at 7.30pm, directed by Zack Snyder and closely based on the late eighties comic book by Alan Moore and local comic book artist Dave Gibbons.

The Watchmen is set in an alternate-history version of 1985 following a group of former vigilante-superheroes during Cold War tensions between the US and the Soviet Union.

Meanwhile an investigation into an apparent conspiracy against them uncovers something even more grandiose and sinister.

The movie grossed $55 million on its opening weekend and was applauded by critics for its dark take on the superhero genre.

Tickets are �5 with concessions �4.50, available from the box office on 01727 844222.
