Last Min Halloween

If you’re anything like me then although today is Halloween you still haven’t made any plans, hopefully some of these ideas will help.

 

Ice Bar Halloween White Party

 

We all miss this guy (mostly from seasons 4-7, we try not to talk about season 8) but you can still experience his icy touch this Halloween at the Ice Bar.

Take a picture with a 7 foot tall White Walking meanie then shuffle over to the Fire Bar for the party, a free glass of Moet & Chandon Ice Imperial (for the 1st 100 guests and anybody wearing white FYI) and complimentary canapes. 

  • From 7pm – 1am
  • Tickets £16.50, from here
  • icebarlondon.com
  • Ice Bar London, 31-33 Heddon St, Mayfair, W1B 4BN

 

Cine-real presents: The Exorcist

 

If you’re not really in the mood to party but still want to get your ‘Spook’ on then pay The Castle Cinema in Homerton a visit to see The Exorcist.

Watch an innocent girl be possessed by a demon who, in my option, seem to just want a friend to play with…forever. 

Sit in the lap of luxury, grab some popcorn and enjoy one of the scariest movies ever.

  • Film Starts at 9pm
  • Tickets £10 from here

  • The Castle Cinema, First floor, 64-66 Brooksby’s Walk, Hackney, London E9 6DA

 

Halloween Pooch Parade – 3rd November

 

It doesn’t feel fair to have all the fun and not get the doggies involved in the Halloween festivities, so get the pooches dressed in their best costumes and get ready for a Halloween Pooch Costume Parade.

Meet at 10.45am at Monument for an 11am dog walk to Flat Iron Sq in Southwark where the Costume Parade will take place at 2pm.

At the square there will be food and drink stalls, a dog friendly DJ playing all the woofiest tunes (I don’t know what that was either), and after the parade at 5.30pm a free kiddie and doggy friendly screening of Frankenweenie.

  • Event starts from 10.30am – 7.30pm
  • Dog costume Parade at 2pm costs £5 to participate (profits go to StreetVet)
  • thelondog.com
  • Flat Iron Square, 64 Southwark Street, SE1 1RU

 

All Hallows Eve Samhain Sound Special

 

If you’re after a more spiritual experience this Halloween then how about a relaxing, immersive evening of sound and meditation.

Otherness.co will be hosting an either lie down or seated event at The Pirates Castle in Camden where you can enjoy soothing sounds and meditative music for a blissful evening of peace and healing frequencies.

A perfect way to see in November.

  • Event starts at 7.30pm-9pm, please arrive by 7.15pm
  • Yoga mats and/or blankets provided for online bookings, please bring your own if you have them if you’d prefer to pay at the door, as availability is not guaranteed.

  • The Pirates Castle 33 Oval Road, Camden Town, NW1 7EA

Cinema by the Pool

 

Pools are great but do you know what would make them better, a movie. Imagine laying on a lounger with your drink of choice, relaxing, and then a movie starts adding to your chilled out-ness, great stuff.

This sound good to you? Then you need to head to the Sheraton Skyline Hotel in Hayes. 

Once a month from Jan 2019 you can watch a classic movie, with a complimentary drink and popcorn, while sitting by an indoor pool (nobody wants to by an outdoor pool in the cold) enjoying the scenery. That may help to drive away the winter blues.

 

Where:  Sheraton Skyline Hotel, Heathrow Airport, Bath Road, Hillingdon, Hayes UB3 5BP

When:  From 25th January 2019, 7.30pm – 11.30pm, Movie showing on the 25th will be Pretty Woman

Tickets:  Tickets cost £18 from here, available to ages 15yrs +

Travel:  Onsite parking available, Piccadilly Line and Heathrow Express a short walk from the hotel.

CINE-optimised

Who likes games (raises hand), who likes movies (raises other hand – now typing with my nose), put them both together and what do you have?

Some questionable character choices, unrecognisable storylines and bad green screen effects, in other words 2 hours of f***ing awesomeness and an urge to play Street Fighter into the wee hours, that’s where Joypad steps in.

Joypad bar aims to bring the joyous memories of retro gaming to the Call of Duty generation. On the last Tuesday of the month they host a pop up event called Cinedouken where they screen movies based on a retro games at Trapeze on Great Eastern Street in Shoreditch, a tournament throughout the evening playing the game the movie is based on will also take place, seeing the last man standing at the end of the night win a £50 bar tab.

On Tuesday 26th July they’ll be showing Doom with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Karl Urban.

So if 90’s beat ’em ups give you warm & fuzzy feelings then get your backside over to Trapeze, fun is guaranteed to ensue…and maybe some free booze.

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!
