A film inspired by the story of a Devon bowler has its first showing in the West End of London on Thursday evening.
Filming of Blackball took place in Torquay in 2002
Blackball follows the story of Griff Sanders, who was banned from the green for a decade after swearing during a championship.
The film was shot in Torbay and premiered in Paignton last week.
Mr Sanders, now 30, was 25 and an England international when he was banned from competitive outdoor lawn bowls events by the Devon County Bowling Association.
He successfully appealed against the ban in 1999.
His offences included rolling cigarettes, drinking lager and once playing an end while eating a bag of chips.
He also wrote a derogatory comment on his scorecard about the secretary of a bowling club.
The film is directed by Mel Smith and stars many of Britain's top comedians, including Paul Kaye and Johnny Vegas.
Filming took place in Torquay in 2002, and it is hoped shots of the resort will bring a boost to the tourism industry.
