Clockwork Orange revisits the scene

Malcolm McDowell starred in A Clockwork Orange

Stanley Kubrick's classic film A Clockwork Orange is to be given a one-off screening in the room where one of its most famous scenes was staged.

In the film, withdrawn by the late director after a number of attacks apparently emulating the violence of the movie, lead character Alex is seen receiving "aversion therapy" to stem his bloodthirsty urges.

Now the lecture theatre at west London's Brunel University in which it was shot will host a screening to mark the film's 40th anniversary.

Actor Malcolm McDowell - who played Alex - was seen in the scene with his eyelids pinned back to prevent him flinching from violent scenes to control his tendencies.

The event takes place on June 2 as part of Volkswagen's See Film Differently series. There will also be a one-off exhibition of stills from the film.

Free tickets are available from www.seefilmdifferently.com.

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
