Alternative film club Matchbox Cineclub holes up at The Old Hairdressers for its monthly sharing session of a handpicked cinematic orphan (aka a weird/cult/lost/banned film they reckon deserves a second look), with this edition's selection being Timothy Carey's 1962 oddball The World's Greatest Sinner – about an insurance salesman who starts his own political-spiritual movement.

Dressing up as your favourite book character encouraged (aka make like a suave Jay Gatsby).
