Bolan’s Shoes (15) – Bonington Cinema, Arnold
Fri 22 – Thu 28 Sep, Various Times £6.80pp £5.00pp on Tuesdays
Bolan’s Shoes takes us on a tumultuous journey through the height of T. Rex mania in 1970s Liverpool. It captures the heady exhilaration of glam rock mania through the experiences of a group of over-excited kids from a local children’s home before a devastating road accident changes their lives forever.
Years later, and still clinging to the adoration of her childhood idol, survivor Penny takes best friend and fellow Marc Bolan fan, Steffan, to visit his shrine in London, but a chance encounter there catapults her back to the horror she had tried so hard to forget. Light-hearted comedy and supernatural chills abound in this inspirational story that explores the enduring legacy of childhood trauma and the life-affirming power of music.
Directed by Ian Puleston-Davies
With Timothy Spall, Leanne Best, Mathew Horne,

Revival is a well-known rock band from Nottingham who celebrate pop music from an era many of us will always hold close to our hearts; memorable tunes ranging from the late fifties to the early seventies (with a few more well-known melodies thrown in for good measure).
The seven piece band was formed in 1990 and quickly discovered their musical tastes were shared by many other people of a certain age! So much so, the chaps quickly found themselves in demand to play an increasing number of concerts and shows all over the country.
Probably the most prestigious venues played by Revival include The London Guildhall (the week after The Queen Mother celebrated her 100th. birthday there) Wollaton Park, Nottingham Albert Hall and The Nottingham Concert Hall. The band was also pleased to appear on BBC TV for “Children in Need” in 2006, and got a mention on
Radio 2 from Wogan the same year.
