As many of you probably know, Vue will be opening their new cinema in Eltham on the site of the old Poundland/Co-op. The planned opening date is the end of April.
There will be six screens with a total of 850 seats – 126 of which will be VIP. In addition to the cinema there will be the ‘Sky Bar’ and new restaurants including Nando’s and Pizza Express.
The opening weekend blockbuster release is likely to be Avengers: Endgame which is released on Thursday 25 April. The film is the second part of a two-film saga, the first being Avengers: Infinity War. It is expected to outperform the $2 billion box office that Infinity War earned.

In my regular monthly blog, I will be picking some of the films that I think you will enjoy.
My recommendations for this month are:
Disney and Tim Burton’s Live Action remake/reimagination of the 1941 classic starring Colin Farrell, Michael Keaton, Danny Devito and Eva Green. Something for everybody young or old – released 29 March.
The second film from Oscar Winning director/writer Jordan Peele is a horror film/thriller that is sure to get you jumping in your seats – released 22 March.
The new DC Comics adaptation stars Zachary Levi and Asher Angel as Billy Batson, a fifteen-year-old boy who is given superpowers by the wizard Shazam. Not your typical superhero film, plenty of comedy from the beginning – released 5 April.
At Eternity’s Gate
Oscar-nominated film starring Willem Dafoe, telling the story of Vincent Van Gogh. Dafoe thoroughly earns his Oscar nomination, portraying the great painter in the latter part of his life.
Stay tuned for next month’s picks and more news on the cinema as it comes.

“I have lived in Eltham all of my life and I’m a am a massive fan of film. I go to the cinema at least once a week and subscribe to a number of film websites. I will be writing a regular blog for SEnine, reviewing and giving my picks of what will be released that month. I am very excited about the new Vue Cinema that is opening and hope to start an Eltham film society that can meet monthly.”
