Update: Tolkien Movie at the Lighthouse

I got a timely reminder from longtime Welly-mooter Wayne, who is currently in Leeds, UK. He sent me this photo:


This has prompted me back into action about watching the movie here as a group. It looks like the Lighthouse Cinema (Cuba Street) will be showing it from the 6th of June onwards. We can't book seats yet until earlier in that same week apparently, so if everyone is happy to wait until then, we'll just pick a session and I'll blog the details here later.

Alternatively, we could book an entire session for our selves - their smaller screen only has 35 seats, and costs $484 to hire for a session - that way we can accommodate anyone else who wants to turn up. The problem with this is that Welly-moot doesn't have a bank account, and I don't fancy running the risk of a heft loss if we don't fill the seats, so we'd have to get enough people to commit, beforehand.

As always, my email is jack@welly-moot.com, let me know your thoughts there or on Facebook.

Update - Upcoming Tolkien biopic movie


Hi all,

We're still waiting to hear which cinemas (if any!) are going to be showing the new Tolkien movie - if anyone has any information on that, please let me know? It's supposed to be released on the 6th of June, but that's all I can find out about it.

It looks like we do have enough people interested to make this into a Welly-moot event, assuming it will actually show somewhere close by, but please do let me know if you're also keen to join us.

My email is jack@welly-moot.com, or leave me a message anywhere you find me.

Meanwhile, enjoy this Stephen Colbert interview of Nicholas Hoult and Lily Collins, the stars of 'Tolkien'. (Thanks to Aaron for the link!)




Enjoy your week!
