From Stage to Screen Blogathon – Everything I’ve Seen

When I came across this fantastic Blogathon idea by Rachel over at Rachel’s Theatre Reviews and Rosie over at The Rosebud Cinema. It was something that I just had to get involved with, because as well as loving the cinema and films I have a passion for the theatre and seeing shows. This is something which I have now properly been doing for the past 10 years, yes realising that has made me stop and think, so it seems to be a perfect time to put together this blog post. I am going to look at all of the different shows I have seen on the stage and then also seen the film version.

7 Films That Will Make You Scared of the Water

It’s been a while since I have put together a ‘7 Things’ list but while watching some of “All is Lost” on Saturday it got me thinking about films which will actually make you scared to go into the sea and maybe of the water in general. I certainly wouldn’t fancy a small boat in the sea at all!

Didn’t quite make the list – Titanic I thought this would be the most obvious choice so decided to not include it in the 7 films.

Page by Page by Paige Tour – Review

An incredible evening with the first lady of musical theatre as she takes a trip through some of the incredible shows she has been part of and belts out some incredible songs from these shows. With plenty of stories and laughs in between to really share in how much Elaine loves being on that stage. But not only that she can still totally own the stage. I am truly honoured and privileged to have seen the absolute legend live after years and years of wanting to do just that, we will never really say goodbye.

Announcement: My Hometown Blogathon

 

Let’s Go To The Movies would like to announce hosting its first ever Blogathon. Which is going to be based around everyone’s hometown. The idea is to do a little bit of research to put together a blog post about your hometown and link it to film. It doesn’t matter if another blogger is from the same town as the blog posts could take totally different angles on it. You are more than welcome to do more than one town if you have moved around and class a few different places as your home.

Some areas you may want to include:

  • Films set in that town
  • Films filmed in your town
  • Famous people in film born in your town
  • Famous people in film who grew up in your town
  • Famous people in film who now live in your town

While I have said film, you can also link to TV shows, Theatre and books if you want to take that angle. I know the blogging network is very large and want to encourage maximum participation in this blogathon!

If you can look to have the posts up by the weekend – 22nd and 23rd November this gives everyone plenty of time to put something together!

From Stage to Screen Blogathon

Just come across this Blogathon which is taking place next weekend! Certainly something I am very interested in given my love for theatre and going to see shows as well as going to the cinema and watching films. So my plan is to pull together a few blog posts for this one! Or at the very least one long blog post with the possibility of then having a feature running in a similar theme for the shows I have seen on the stage and also seen the film version.

The blogathon is being run by Rachel over at Rachel’s Theatre Reviews and Rosie over at The Rosebud Cinema. Such an incredible idea from the pair and I am very much looking forward to putting together a good post over the next week to take part. So thought it was a great idea to give the whole blogathon a shoutout and see if anyone else wants to get involved!
