Join Black Cats for Bond premiere

Charity screening of the new James Bond film.

The Foundation of Light is giving football fans the opportunity to join Sunderland AFC stars at a special advanced charity screening of the new James Bond film held at Cineworld Boldon.

The exclusive black tie event will take place at Cineworld Boldon on Thursday 25th October, with guests walking the red carpet and enjoying Bond themed games and activities before taking their seats for the premiere of Bond’s 23rd big screen outing starring British actor Daniel Craig.

The latest instalment of the 007 franchise, ‘Skyfall’, hits cinemas on Friday 26th October, and the Foundation of Light is offering red and white supporters the chance to watch Bond’s latest adventure with their heroes before the movie’s official UK release.

The Foundation of Light is the registered charity of Sunderland AFC and members of the SAFC first team will attend the premiere and meet guests before the film’s screening.

All money raised from the event will go towards supporting the charity’s award winning community projects.

Katrina Quinn, Events Co-ordinator at the Foundation of Light, said: “Following the success of our charity screenings over the past four years, we’ve been looking for the right film to showcase and ‘Skyfall’ certainly fits the bill.

“Purchasing a ticket not only gives Sunderland supporters and Bond fans the opportunity to see the film before its general release and raise money for charity, but the chance to join Sunderland AFC players at the premiere making the evening extra special.

“We’d like to extend our thanks to our friends at Cineworld Boldon, our drinks sponsor Heineken, and Sunderland AFC for their continued support in what will be another exciting Foundation of Light event.”

Tickets are extremely limited and are priced at £15, with VIP places available for £30. Admission is by advanced ticket only and all seats are pre-allocated.
