Your pick of the city’s nights out.

• FILM: A Few Best Men (15) David (Xavier Samuel) and Mia (Laura Brent) meet on a tropical island and are instantly smitten. They pledge themselves to each other and David returns to rain-lashed London to tell his pals the exciting news. “You are gambling your whole life on a girl you don’t know!” despairs confirmed bachelor Tom (Kris Marshall). Clumsy clot Graham (Kevin Bishop) and drama queen Luke (Tim Draxl) voice similar concerns. Unperturbed, David books a flight to Australia and Tom, Graham and Luke join him on the hare-brained odyssey. David heads straight to the in-laws and ingratiates himself to Mia’s father, Senator Jim Ramm (Jonathan Biggins), and his wife, Barbara (Olivia Newton-John). Meanwhile, Tom, Graham and Luke stop at the den of a tattooed drug-dealer (Steve Le Marquand) and accidentally leave with a stash of cocaine. As preparations for the big day gather pace, disaster follows catastrophe and David breaks down. General release, various cinemas, times and prices, see cinema listings, left
