Summer outdoor cinema
The adventures of James Bond in Summer Cinematograph! The outdoor cinema screen will be set on summer Wednesdays in the Źródliska Park, while on Fridays it will be installed on the Stary Rynek.
The character of James Bond was created by Ian Fleming in 1952. The first book devoted to agent 007 was titled “Casino Royale.” After Fleming’s death, further adventures of Her Majesty’s secret agent were accounted by Kingsley Amis, John Gardner, Raymond Benson, Sebastian Faulks, Jeffery Deaver and William Boyd.
By 2015 24 official films were developed (by EON Productions0 as well as three independent films. The role of Bond was given to: Sean Connery (6 films), George Lazenby (1), Roger Moore (7), Timothy Dalton (2), Pierce Brosnan (4), and Daniel Craig (4). Agent 007 introduced himself with the words “My name is Bond. James Bond” for the first time in Doctor No. Sean Connery uses the phrase with a cigarette in his mouth, at a casino table in the company of a beautiful (of course) woman.
