    Miss Saigon 25th Anniversary Performance

    I love musicals… there I’ve said it! I’m one of the very few Newcastle based Dads that hates football and love musicals… and Disney. It’s something that I was brought up into. Every other year my parents would take me down to London to see a show. The first one I remember being Phantom of […]

  • FInding Dory

    Finding Dory

    Finding Nemo was a surprise hit for me, we went to the Odeon at the Gate to see it (Before Children aka B.C.). I had expect to enjoy the rich colours and animation, but ended up being sucked into the story and actually laughing out loud. The Scene where Dory talks whale was the scene […]

    Back in 2013 Catherine and me went on a date night to the Odeon in the Metro Centre. Generally our experience of the cinema had been a shrug and “yeah, it was alright”. So to set this date night on the right track we upgraded our seats to the Gallery and trough-ed lots of sweets, […]

    Eddie the Eagle

    The last time my Mum had been to the cinema was nearly 20 years ago. My Dad had taken her to see Titanic on the big screen. It was a big event that my Dad was clearly looking forward to as he was the kind of person who’d wait “until it was on the tv […]

  • Deadpool Not a Super Hero

    Deadpool is NOT a super hero film!

    You may have noticed we go to the cinema quite a lot. This is because we are Vitality Life members and I’ll explain more in a few weeks time, but for now lets just say that it is Life insurance with benefits! Deadpool I had managed to miss all the hype behind this film, even […]
