THERE'S the chance to catch the film Hotel Rwanda at Bedford's Bowen West Theatre next Friday, February 2.

As his country descends into chaos and civil war, five-star hotel manager Paul Ruseabagina (Don Cheadle) sets out to save his family.

But when he sees that the world will not intervene in the massacre of minority Tutsis, he finds the courage to open his hotel to over 1,200 refugees.

Now with a rabid militia at the gates he has only his wits and words to keep them alive for another hour, another day.

Don Cheadle was nominated for three Academy Awards for his performance.

Tickets cost £3 and are available by calling 01234 219333.
