In the evening, the Canny Comic Con action moved to Newcastle's super-swish indie cinema supreme, the Tyneside Cinema, for a unique wrap party - the DRINK AND DRAW FILM NIGHT!
It ran from 7pm to around 11pm. Everyone was encouraged:
"Just bring your drawing skills, (or, failing that, drinking skills). Everyone is welcome for some doodling and banter - and a rare chance to catch some cult comic adaptations on the big screen, starting with the original Buster Crabbe Flash Gordon series - then an audience-chosen so-bad-it's-good gem might be aired later in the evening!"
Like the main CCC, this event was free
The Tyneside Cinema is right in the centre of Newcastle, only a couple of minutes walk from the library. They are proper cool, show great films and have a wide range of fine beverages of all types for sale. For more info (and to see the other amazing stuff they've got on) have a look at their website.
