My Favourite Spots in Nottinghamshire…

The Woman in Black

Today we introduce a new section on our blog in which we will share people’s favourite places and favourite things to do in Nottinghamshire.

 

 

 

We start our section with The Woman in Black’s director James Watkins, originally from Bakersfield, Nottingham. His favourite places in Nottinghamshire are:

” – Newstead Abbey: totally Byronic…
– The Broadway Cinema: a great indie cinema- passionate about film- check out Screen 4 designed by Sir Paul Smith.
Wollaton Hall: the ultimate house on a hill, stunning parklands, museum and concert venue. And, rumour has it, Batman’s new Wayne Manor.

The Woman in Black stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and is signed Hammer, Britain’s legendary film studio that brought us Dracula and Frankenstein amongst other classics.

James Watkins’s film is an adaptation of Susan Hill’s novel and relates the story of Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a young London solicitor who is forced to leave his three-year-old son and travel to the remote village of Crythin Gifford to attend to the affairs of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House. But when he arrives at the creepy old mansion, he discovers dark secrets in the villagers’ past, and his sense of unease deepens when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed all in black.

James Watkins’s The Woman in Black (12A) will hit cinemas this Friday 10th February. Check Broadway Cinema’s and Cineworld’s websites for times of screening in Nottingham.
