Going Out Week 5: Revolutionary Road at the Reel, Loughborough

February 4, 2009

No chance of seeing The Broken this week and so plan to watch Revolutionary Road on Wednesday. It has made a big splash at the weekend box office in third place behind Slumdog Millionaire and Valkyrie. In the spirit of adventure (or more truthfully convenience) there is a chance to visit a new cinema. This will be the third new cinema this year. Going to the Reel in Loughborough (6.20 screening) which promises an ‘operating philosophy’¬† to provide customers¬† with:

  • Comfort
  • Cleanliness
  • Affordable prices
  • Friendly, knowledgeable staff giving quality customer service
  • Great pictures and sound
  • The latest movies

and most of all…. real entertainment. There, that’s got all you providers of fake entertainment worried.

The Reel is the former Curzon Cinema and an art deco survivor:


The ‘affordable prices’ kick in on Wednesdays:


Will have to think of some tricky questions to test the ‘knowledgeable staff’. Not sure about Revolutionary Road – its middle-class psychodrama isn’t it? Angst in my pants!


DiCaprio and Winslet ‘trapped in a world of encoded convention’

One question I have is why David Thompson at BBC FIlms wanted to make this particular film?
