Is James Bond the saviour of UK Cinemas?

No Time To Die was originally meant to be released in April 2020 and was the first big film to announce it was pushing back to November 2020 but as things went on and we had the cinemas closed for months and then an attempt at reopening in the July 2020 didn’t fully go to plan for all chains with Cineworld quickly closing once again and rumours surrounding if they would ever actually be able to reopen.

Odeon made a longer attempt to stay open but considering no new releases and people being somewhat scared to actually attend the cinema they had to close again as well, it was actually very sad times wondering if Cinema would survive the pandemic. With some companies releasing films straight to streaming services and charging cinema prices to rent and watch at home it was a worrying time for those of us who love nothing more than attending the cinema.

November 2017 at the Cinema

In November I went to see 10 films at the cinema, but one of them doesn’t count towards my Unlimited Card as I had to go to Tyneside Cinema to see Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool due to it being on a limited release. So for the monthly numbers I pay £17.90 a month and 9 films at Cineworld works out at £1.98 per film. I actually thought this was a rather strong month for film!

I saw the following films:

1st – A Bad Moms Christmas – Review

3rd – Murder on the Orient Express – Review

8th – Happy Death Day – Review

10th – Paddington 2 – Review

17th – Justice League – Review

19th – Daddy’s Home 2 – Review

22nd – Ingrid Goes West – Review

24th – Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool – Review

29th – Cineworld Secret Screening 6 – Molly’s Game – Review

30th – Battle of the Sexes – Review

Tyneside Cinema: Mother’s Day Afternoon Tea

For Mother’s Day being a total film geek. I thought it was a great idea to then pass some of that onto my Mam for Mother’s Day this year. So when I received an email from a local independent cinema , the incredible Tyneside Cinema in Newcastle to be precise. That they were doing a special Afternoon Tea for Mother’s Day which included a screening of Mamma Mia! This was at a cost of £25 per person (including a glass of Prosecco)
