Jack Nicholson fans in Australia who are able to make it to The Astor Theatre in St Kilda, Melbourne, can see 1970’s Five Easy Pieces on Sunday 10 April – there will be three screenings on the day at 2, 5 and 8pm.

Toy Story 3 continues to pull in the crowds and this week can be found in the UK in Exeter, London, Newcastle, Bridgend and St Helens.

Edinburgh’s Filmhouse will be showing three titles represented by Park Circus over the next week: Richard Fleischer’s 1954 adventure, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea on Sunday 10 April; watery animated classic, Finding Nemo, on Sunday 10 and Monday 11 April; and 1935’s rarely screened, and intriguingly titled, British drama, The Passing of the Third Floor Back, on Tuesday 12 April.

Finally, what do you call a creature that is half-man, half-monster? A Manster of course, as seen in George P Breakston and Kenneth C Crane’s notorious 1959 sci-fi thriller, screening at London’s ICA on Thursday 14 April. Peter Dyneley stars as a US journalist in Tokyo who gets more than he bargained for thanks to a mad scientist (Satoshi Nakamura). The screening will be preceded by a presentation from Dr David Luke, President of the Parapsychological Association, on “remembering the future and other anomalies from the annals of parapsychology, the forbidden science”.
