Joypad bar aims to bring the joyous memories of retro gaming to the Call of Duty generation.

Hot Tub Cinema

Hot-Tub-Cinema-270413-003-Copyright-ToddPacey_marieclaire-co-uk

It’s September, the days are getting shorter, the clothing becoming thicker and thoughts of laying on that sun soaked beach in a bikini are but a distant memory. But what if your swimwear could be saved from the oblivion of the back drawn, would you do what you can to help?

I thought you’d say that, your charitable nature is truly remarkable.

Hot Tub Cinema encourages people to don their finest Speedo garb, jump into the nearest whirlpool (the term ‘hot tub’ & ‘whirlpool’ are mostly interchangeable)  and enjoy the show. Don’t forget to grab some friends, – up to 8 people per tub – some silly bath toys and a waterproof camera to capture the madness.

Throughout September they’re showing ‘The Best of the Noughties’ movies, so here are your current choices:

  • The Hangover – 17th Sept
  • Team America, World Police – 18th Sept
  • Dodge ball, A true underdog story – 19th Sept
  • Finding Nemo – 20th Sept
  • Bridget Jones Diary – 21st Sept
  • Anchorman, The legend of Ron Burgundy – 22nd Sept

Over 8 years the company has evolved from a private party with 1 tub, to a 30 tub public screening event in London, New York and Bristol. During the summer the movies are show on a rooftop in East London, however everything moves indoors during the winter months, so you don’t have to worry about freezing your bits off. Also the hot tubs are filled with 40C water, which will keep you nice and warm.

Over 18’s only so bring your ID just to be safe. The venue is licensed so food and alcohol are available to buy, but must be consumed on the premise,  and no you can’t BYO.

Watching movies with celebrities

6A9484A9-EA40-C576-A63AB01A890F7B63_tharasofian-blogspot-com

Everybody loves going to the cinema, fresh overpriced popcorn, huge screen, surround sound and sticky floors, all key components to the cinematic experiences.

How can watching movies get any better right? What if you could watch them with the stars…wax stars…wax celebrities under the stars…former stars, sufficiently confused?

For 2 nights only you can watch films at Madame Tussaud’s cinema dome, (formally the London Planetarium) after having an access all areas A lister party, where you can take many-a-selfie with your favourite celebs.

Chose between Julia Roberts in her very high, rather shiny boots, croissants with Audrey Hepburn or high flying antics with Mr Cruise, either way it’s bound to be bloody amazing in a 4-D cinema.

Unique cinematic experience revealed!

The age of Capaldi begins at the Tricycle Theatre

uktv-doctor-who-peter-capaldi-filming-on-set-9_digitalspy-co-uk

 

It’s happening, it’s finally happening, Carnival hits the capital this weekend…I’m joking, although it’s true, Peter Capaldi finally comes to the small screen as the twelfth Dr. I know a number of people who are losing their s*** over this, what they might not know is that they can also watch his first feature length episode on the big screen too.

The good people at the Tricycle Theatre have agreed to air ‘Deep Breath’ in their very cosy cinema, from 7.35pm on Saturday 23rd Aug, god bless peer pressure.

Any die hard fan, or “whovian” (I believe that is the semi-accepted term), should get themselves down to the cinema as, not only will they be showing the 80 min long episode, they will also be showing the exclusive Q&A session live from Leicester Square afterwards, and a never seen before, 5 min video from a future Dr Who DVD release. Pretty damn snazzy huh!
