The weekend’s here and that means it’s time for another film quiz – this week’s trivial pursuit charts cinema’s bars, pubs, and clubs, in between the usual teasers.
As usual, we’ve compiled three rounds of Friday film trivia for you to enjoy for fun or profit. There’s no prizes for coming first, so it’s mostly just for fun, but whether you’re playing solo or challenging friends and family on a video call quiz night, (remember when everyone was doing those?) we hope you enjoy.
Once you’ve completed this week’s quiz, you don’t have to go home, but you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. Please do get in touch in the comments and let us know how you did (scores out of 30 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Here goes…
