Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Preview: Quilliam Bros in La La Land

If you're yet to see Damien Chazelle's Oscar-winning film La La Land and just happen to be at a loose end in Newcastle on Tuesday (Jan 15) there is an opportunity to attend a free-admission screening at Quilliam Bros.' Teahouse. 

The ever-popular, all-things-tea emporium at Barras Bridge regularly screens films that you wish you'd seen first time round or simply would like to see again. Earlier this month Chazelle's Whiplash was on the menu, now, at eight o'clock, Tuesday in Quilliam's basement cinema it's La La Land. Starring Ryan Gosling as a wannabe jazz pianist and Emma Stone as Mia, this romantic, feel-good movie is worth catching for the soundtrack alone. Justin Hurwitz' Academy Award-winning score is a real 'ear-worm' - it'll be in your head 'til summer. 

Admission is free so the least you could do is sit with a cuppa. Quilliam Bros.' Teahouse is the building at the bottom of Claremont Road opposite Great North Museum: Hancock. La La Land is a 12A certificate film.
