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.

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.

The age of Capaldi begins at the Tricycle Theatre



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!
