The Swindon cinema was chosen as one of two venues in the country allowed to show the new 007 movie - a day before anyone else.
 
The special screening was made into a charity event in aid of the NSPCC in Swindon, with tickets costing 17.50.
 
The cinema had a Bond theme throughout the evening with the lucky few enjoying the red carpet treatment and a cocktail bar.
 
Quantum of Solace: the Swindon Connection
 
Quantum of Solace Ian Fleming Swindon
The lastest Bond blockbuster takes its title from a short-story written by former Swindon resident Ian Fleming in 1962, while he was living at nearby Warneford Place in Sevenhampton.
 
One of the last 007 adventures he penned, Fleming was buried at St James's church there after he died in 1964.
