I spend a lot of time at either the cinema or theatre. You will then find reviews from these films and shows!

Preview: April 2017 at the Cinema

Each month I have now decided to do a preview/up and coming post of the films that are going to be coming to the cinema. So here we go for April in 2017 and which films we can look to go and see, or avoid I guess. *Note this is for UK releases*

Probably not going to be the best month of the year at the cinema but I certainly have two films that I am really looking forward to. Yes, I know that does not sound like many at all but when you take a look at the better films this month has on offer then I am sure you will fully understand.

So take a look at what is coming to a cinema near you this month . . .



Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) Review


Bridget Jones is pretty much sick of her singleton life style and vows to make some serious changes. Through her diary entries we get to go along on the crazy ride as she attempts to find true love.


Bridget Jones’s Baby (2016) Review

Eddie the Eagle (2016) Review


Eddie Edwards is well known as Eddie the Eagle in England due to his crazy attempts at the Ski Jump and making it to the Olympics. It all started when he was a child and told to give up sport but he always dreamed of one day being an Olympian.


Moulin Rouge! (2001) Review

A writer named Christian ends up in a crazy world when he travels to Paris and ends up working in the Moulin Rouge where he falls in love with Satine a courtesan, only problem is she must seduce the Duke in order for him to invest.


2015 at the Theatre

In 2015 I managed to catch a record breaking 20 musicals and plays on stage in both the North East (Sunderland Empire or Theatre Newcastle) as well as trips to London to see them in the West End. You can read through the normal list 2015 Theatre. This number was certainly boosted by the Wicked UK Tour visiting Sunderland which I just had to go and see more than once, three times to be exact. This was also down to getting some fantastic deals with ATG Theatre Card, as for less popular touring shows at the Sunderland Empire I do get some discounts. This is nice and means you can buy last minute tickets for some shows, obviously depending on how popular they are.

The show I mentioned in my 2014 at the Theatre you know just the small one starring Imelda Staunton . . . Gypsy I went to see twice in London! Let’s say goodbye to 2015 . . .


Stage Door – Jim Broadbent

I had a bit of a nightmare on Wednesday that when I went to watch A Christmas Carol I left the programme I bought in the toilets! So I did not have it to get signed at the stage door. So I had to get my ticket signed instead.

To make it all more disappointing Jim Broadbent said no photos, which I was really surprised about as had seen quite a few on twitter with fans at the stage door. Must have caught him on an off day?

Musical Moments – Moulin Rouge!

I have felt inspired to have a musical moment today as I am putting together a post on Jim Broadbent as my excitement is growing to head to see him as Scrooge in A Christmas Carol on 16th December (which will be my last Theatre show of 2015). So I have decided to celebrate two of his fantastic musical moments in Moulin Rouge!

The Show Must Go On – a rather serious moment which sums up exactly what they all must do!
