Islington's Vue Cinema will screen a special live broadcast of the renowned raconteur and comedian Stephen Fry as he regales chapters from his new book: The Fry Chronicles.
Tickets for the reading at Royal Festival Hall sold out so quickly thousands of fans were left disappointed, but now they can catch the event on the big screen at the N1 Centre, in Parkfield Street, Islington.
Stephen's latest book details some of the most turbulent and least well known years of his life, and the passages he will read promise to excite, inform, entertain and surprise.
The one off performance on September 13 will be streamed via a satellite feed to Islington Vue and 15 other Vue cinemas across the UK.

In a cinema trailer released last month, Stephen said: "As part of a thrilling new experiment the event will be broadcast live from the Royal Festival Hall direct via satellite to selected cinemas all over the country - live - as it actually happens - in two glorious dimensions. If you can bear to join me - get a ticket, bring some popcorn and a friend and make a party of it!"
As well as offering an exclusive preview of his hilarious, frank and uncompromising new book, the UK's favourite Tweeter will be holding a question and answer session via the social networking site after the reading. The tweet Q&A will also be shown live on screen, giving customers the chance to get truly interactive, as if they were there!
