The latest issue of Film Stories is on its way – and here’s what’s inside, as cinemas around the UK reopen their doors.

Issue 25 of Film Stories magazine has made its journey to the printers, and it’s available to order now. It’s jam-packed with, as you’d expect, lots and lots of movie stuff.

It’s going into a few WHSmiths stores around the UK, but primarily is available via mail order. It’s entirely independent, 100% about film, and it’s available to order now!

Here’s the front cover, before we tell you a bit more…
