Hot Tub Cinema


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.



The Place: Rockwell House, 10-14 Hewett Street, Shoreditch, EC2A 3NN

Tickets: www.hottubcinema.com or www.eventbrite.co.uk

What to bring:

Swimwear, a towel, a plastic bag for the wet bits, some dry clothes, flip flops, silly (not rude) toys, inflatables, wigs, hats etc, waterproof camera, some cash and a smile.

Your decision to act has saved a pair of swimming trunks from obscurity, you should be very proud!

Watching movies with celebrities


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.

The Place: Madame Tussauds, Marylebone road, London., NW1 5LR

Tickets: Can be purchased from www.eventbrite.co.uk

Unique cinematic experience revealed!


The poor crazies started to take over Leicester Square last night in anticipation of the last Twilight film, which premieres in London tonight…People going to the West End this evening YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

The fun and frolics start from 5pm, so if your not a fan I advise that you stay away from the Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Sq area.

If you’re a fan then don’t forget your costumes, camera and a picture to sign…oh and a pen!

Free thing to do in London, Revealed!


A Fistful of films, event recommendation from Rhiannon Stephanie Docherty

Info from now-here-this.timeout.com

Image from avclub.com

Why not help bring the good times back to Ealing today (from 5.30pm) by saddling up for Time Out Live’s ‘Fistful of Film’ evening, in association with MGM HD.

The main event is an outdoor screening of Sergio Leone’s seminal Spaghetti Western ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ in Walpole Park, featuring Clint Eastwood in his first film as the enigmatic ‘The Man with No Name’, but don’t let that distract you too much from a host of other rootin’ tootin’, gunslingin’ activities, all for only £3.

Live music comes courtesy of the fabulous Mariachi Tequila (could there be a more Mexican-sounding band name?) and should perfectly complement the cold beer and burritos on offer.


Price: £3

Time and Date:From 5.30pm on Saturday 13th August

Where: Walpole Park, Mattlock Lane, Ealing W5 5EQ

With the Olympic Stadium as a backdrop, the cinema shows films with a sporting theme.


The programme is as follows:

Jul 27: ‘Rocky’ (with live orchestral accompaniment)

Jul 28: ‘Fire in Babylon

Jul 29: ‘What Have You Done Today, Mervyn Day?’

Jul 30: ‘Pelada’

Aug 4: ‘Escape to Victory’

Aug 5: ‘Breaking Away’

Aug 6: ‘Cool Runnings’

Aug 7: ‘Pumping Iron’

Aug 10: ‘East End Tales’

Aug 11: ‘Rio Breaks’

Aug 12: ‘Slapshot’

Aug 13: ‘Chariots of Fire’.

Cycle-in Cinema, Portobello Road

Info and Image from magnificentrevolution.org

Imagine a Drive-In Cinema but without the cars! People ride to the screening on their two-wheeled beasts, hook their bicycle to the generator and power the performance. The movie soundtrack will be broadcast using a wireless transmitter allowing audience members to ‘tune-in‘ to the performances using their mobile phones or radios.

This magnificent Cycle-In Cinema also won’t cost the earth. The electricity for the screenings will be produced by the cyclists – you, your friends and neighbours and most of the equipments will be delivered on bikes and trailers.

Cycle-In Cinema will be a programme of 12 pedal-powered screenings in four London boroughs throughout 2011. The cinemas could take place anywhere! They will resurrect the abandoned corners of the capital and weave some magic into our local lidos, squares, rooftops and playgrounds. Cycle-In Cinema is an opportunity to bring communities together to take pride in their local areas, have some fun and experience something new and inspiring.

The next Screening will take place as part of the InTransit Art Festive on July 31st on Portobello Road.
