When my friends told me it cost them £15 to go watch the Wolf of Wall Street this weekend, even though I’m a huge fan of the film, I was compelled to find somewhere SOMEWHERE that provided a much cheaper solution to watching great films for less. So, luckily I stumbled across Vauxhall Village.

Back for a second season, this company bring the big screen to original and unusual locations. This time round they’re turning a disused railway arch in Vauxhall into the tunnel of love for one weekend only. From the 13th 16th February film fans can come down to a mixture of screenings, ranging from the quirky art house and indie flicks, to the old school classics, as it seems that there’s something to suit all tastes!

So here’s the schedule:

February 2014

Thursday 13th7.30pm – Annie hall

Friday 14th 7.30pm – Romeo + Juliet (Baz Luhrmann)

Saturday 15th2pm -Moonrise kingdom    4.30pm– Lost in translation   7.30pm – Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind

Sunday 16th2pm – Brief encounter   4.30pm– Breakfast at tiffany’s 7.30pm – Casablanca

Who are Vauxhall Village? 

Vauxhall Village have previously brought us outdoor summer screenings in the pleasure gardens and festive delights in the railway arch, this time round love is definitely in the air. So its a great place to head down early to soak up the atmosphere, with friends, your other half, your family or your next door neighbour’s cat. They’ve got a bar so you can  sip champagne cocktail, in aid of Valentines day you can pick your loved one up some flowers at the flower stall, or just treat yourself to some chocolate fondue! Sounds like much more of a fun night out I think!

The films are being shown on a big screen at the back of the arch, comfy chairs, wireless headphones and cosy blankets will be provided.

Tickets – £7.50 from www.wegottickets.com/vauxhallvillage  with profits going to local homeless charity Thames Reach (even better!)

Make your Valentines day that little different this year and watch some fantastic films!

Hello everyone,

Well its been a busy start to 2014 for me, I’ve brought together some of my favourite people and my favourite subject to develop a brand new film show for YouTube called The Reel. Its launching in February, but we wanted to start getting some of the content out there, including a very quick round up of the weeks hottest films that will be hitting the cinema every weekend.

So, introducing the pilot episode of Gone in 60 Seconds, our top tips to watch at the cinema this weekend. As it is a pilot episode please forgive the couple of technical hitches that have been happening (mainly the sound) but regardless of this you get the gist, so it would be great to see what you all think.

If you like this please do share it, follow our brand new Twitter handle @thereeldeal2014 and subscribe to the channel on YouTube. We want to create something fun for all you film fans out there, so hoping that this could be the start of something great! Stay tuned, wish us luck and please, do send me your thoughts and suggestions.

Yes you should be super excited for this… we’ve heard all about these actors mucking around on an oversized boat with a bunch of animals, but as the marketing machine kicks into gear, we finally have something to get excited about. Here it is, the very first look at what the Director of Black Swan and Requiem for a Dream has in store for us… I can only hope that it will blow our minds!!!!

Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the film stars Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Ray Winstone, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins and Logan Lerman.

Will keep you posted on further updates soon.
