Upstairs, General Duncan watches an incident unfold on multiple TV screen. Captain Macbeth is refusing to obey the order to abort a mission.

In Joseph Heller's Catch-22, one of the doomed pilots reads long, interminable books, reasoning it will prolong his life. Burlesque and The Green Hornet (see above) would have worked just as well.

The cold snap is expected to reduce cinema ticket sales by a quarter this month, losing the industry up to £24m. December is typically a big month, and with films such as the Christina Aguilera flick Burlesque, above, on release, cinema owners had high hopes for this year.

Party Of The Week: The credits roll, and the stars roll up for Shane Meadows' Edinburgh credit crunch party
Friday 26 June 2009
Most parties at the Edinburgh International Film Festival (EIFF) are prim and held in hotels – but not director Shane Meadows' party. After the screening of his new mockumentary, Le Donk & Scor-Zay-Zee, the party on Tuesday night at St Peter's Church Hall was just plain silly. Invitations were sent out from Le Donk, a rock roadie, played in the film by Paddy Considine, inviting everyone to his credit crunch party. Considine, in character, arrived at the party in a rickshaw, while the Nottingham rapper Scor-Zay-Zee (aka Dean Palinczuk), who plays himself, pulled up in a pink limousine. Guests paid 75 pence to get into the party and the BAFTA-winning director Meadows took on the role of DJ. The tombola had a variety of prizes, including a hamburger in a can and a blow-up banana.
