***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.

December 6: 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.

December 7, 13, 14, 27: Royal Shakespeare Company’s Henry IV – Part 1

This play continues from where Richard II ends and is centred around the idea of rulership. Henry is troubled because he perceives his own rebellion against Richard II, which won him the crown, to be a dishonorable act.

Barmer Boys is a trio fo musicians that brings to you the centuries-old musical tradition of the Manganiyars, combining Rajasthani folk and Sufi music. They have performed at MTV Coke Studio, Mood Inidigo and NH7 Weekender.

December 28: Broadway’s Romeo & Juliet

The first Broadway staging in 36 years, this revival of Romeo and Juliet retains Shakespeare's language while moving the setting to contemporary times in which the warring Montague and Capulet families are of different ethnicities.

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.
