Cinema First – The 450 Films For UK Cinemas!

Today Cinema First released a list of films that can be used at cinemas when they reopen in July. With Cineworld being the first to announce a date for England on 10th July they will then need films to show. The list has a very wide variety of genres as well as from all decades. I personally hope to see a lot of older films on the big screen for the first time, I don’t want recent ones given a release! Let’s appreciate some amazing films on the big screen for what could well be the very first time (Yes Casablanca and Some Like It Hot I am talking about you, not forgetting my all time favourite When Harry Met Sally!)

Singin’ in the Rain (1952) Review

singin_in_the_rain_zpsrbthq9nm

Don Lockwood and Lina Lamont are the stars for a studio and the silent pictures they make. But the transition to talking pictures after the success of The Jazz Singer is about to throw everything into chaos when Lina’s voice both talking and for singing is horrendous.

RIP Debbie Reynolds

1482965444305_zpsdhxzchcr

Following the heartbreaking news of Carrie Fisher passing away we have been given a double whammy when a day later her mother Debbie Reynolds has also died. If anyone has ever died of a broken heart this certainly has to be it. Such horrible news for the family now having to deal with even more sadness.

Thoughts go out with the family at this truly difficult time.

RIP Debbie Reynolds

From Stage to Screen Blogathon – Everything I’ve Seen

When I came across this fantastic Blogathon idea by Rachel over at Rachel’s Theatre Reviews and Rosie over at The Rosebud Cinema. It was something that I just had to get involved with, because as well as loving the cinema and films I have a passion for the theatre and seeing shows. This is something which I have now properly been doing for the past 10 years, yes realising that has made me stop and think, so it seems to be a perfect time to put together this blog post. I am going to look at all of the different shows I have seen on the stage and then also seen the film version.

Singin’ in the Rain (UK Tour)

This tour has come straight from the West End with some of the cast being involved as well. I saw it on Saturday night at the Sunderland Empire where it has a few week stint, after seeing it and all the water involved on the stage I can understand why it is having lengthy stays in theatres. It must take some setting up for the different scenes but more about that later!
