Can't decide if you should catch up with your buddies at the local dive bar or watch a movie tomorrow? 

Kill two birds with one stone and watch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1  with them instead!

The third installation of The Hunger Games trilogy, the film is centered around Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) who rises as the symbol of the mass revolution against the oppressive Capitol. Experience the gritty telling of a civil war, as this Mockingjay spreads her wings to fight, inspiring the masses with her words to the enemies, “If we burn, you burn with us.”

Calling it 'unsubtly resonant' and 'rousing', Variety Magazine states that the film's plans for box office domination seem very secure. 

See you there, peeps! We'll be in the back row with the giant tub of popcorn.

Getting There: Catch The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, releasing at PVR Cinemas this weekend, prebook and click here for ticket details.

Sponsored: PVR LIVE - Event Cinema In Your City

***This post is sponsored by PVR LIVE***

Never seen Queen in concert? Missed watching Swan Lake last time you were in New York? London’s too much of a trek to catch something from the Royal Shakespeare Company?

The only way to stop missing out is to track PVR LIVE. What? We’ll just get straight to the (en) pointe.

PVR’s newest division, PVR LIVE brings event cinema to Indian cities, reserving Sundays (with repeats the following Saturday) for screenings of awesome musicals, Broadway shows, theatre, ballet performances, music concerts and exhibition films from around the world!

Since its launch in September, shows have featured both local and international content including Matthew Bourne's Swan Lake in 3D, AIB’s Royal Turds, Pretentious Nights and the One Direction – Where We Are concert film. Perfect for those looking to do more than brunch and bum around on Sundays.

Tutus & Talent in November 

If you’re planning the rest of the month, be sure to pencil these in.

November 23: Royal Shakespeare Company’s Richard II

This will be the first ever cinema screening in India capturing the stage of the Royal Shakespeare Ccompany (RSC)! A play about a man ordained by God to lead his people, but also about human weakness and vanity, Richard II sounds like introspection with popcorn. This particular RSC production opened to a slew of awesome reviews, with The Guardian calling it “a beautifully crafted, richly detailed production”.

Repeat screening on November 29.

November 30: Moulin Rouge – The Ballet

“I am willing to bet that this show, which played to sold-out houses in Ottawa, will continue to wow audiences wherever it tours,” said Le Droit. And touring it is now in Mumbai through PVR Live, a production by Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet. A graceful rendition of the Moulin Rouge cabaret, we can’t wait to be at this one.

Repeat screening on December 6.

Getting there: PVR LIVE tickets and schedule available on, view the Facebook page here. Tickets start at Rs 300.

Bandra Wine Festival Returns
Monday, 10 November 2014 10:39

The weekend might be dead and gone, but it’s here with us this Monday morning in spirit. Next Saturday and Sunday, dedicate to the Bandra Wine Festival (book your pass now), back for its fifth edition.

The two-day long celebration at D’Monte Park is offering up its usual repertoire of international and domestic wine tastings along with talks, walks and workshops to teach you about the winer things in life.

Rs 500 gets you a single tasting from every one of the nine domestic wineries present (including Chateau d’Ori, Grover and Oakwood), a sample of Italian wine from Riona and of course, a cheese platter. Also stop by the well stocked cheese store peddling over twenty varieties from gouda and smoked mozzarella to edam and feta.


Swirl and sip or lose the fancy pants in favour of the grape stomping championship. There’s also a cooking competition (following the kitchen demos) for amateur chefs to show off their culinary chops. But if your skills just don’t cut it, the food court is there to provide ample sustenance.

See you there!

Getting There: The Bandra Wine Festival from November 15-16 at D’Monte Park Recreation Centre, Perry Road, Bandra (West), view their Facebook page here ( and visit their website (
