Kingsman – The Secret Service… At the Vue Cinema in the Glasgow Fort

Wednesday, 28 January 2015


I have always secretly yearned to be a Celebrity, attending A list parties and film premiers, so when I was lucky enough to be invited to the Regional Premiere of Kingsman – the Secret Service, I instantly started planning what to wear.

The Premiere was being held at one of my favourite cinemas, the Vue at the Glasgow Fort. My regular readers will know that I am a big fan of the Glasgow Fort, a shopping centre situated just off the M8 about five miles outside the city centre. Full of all of my favourite shops, restaurants and bars with plenty of free parking what is not to love.

So the night of the Premiere arrived and suitably attired, my husband and I rocked up and I am not going to lie, I was a little surprised by the lack of paparazzi. We were a little early so popped next door to TGI for a glass of wine. I thought it was a lovely touch that the designated driver got unlimited soft drinks at no extra charge. 

The wine was delish but no time for  a second before heading to the Vue – where the red carpet was in place and baby I worked it!

As we went into the screening we were handed a glass of fizz, a goody bag and a publicity poster. 

We then were linked live to the Leicester Square premier where all the cast were interviewed and the fabulous Take That entertained us all. And then we were all given a second fizz (followed by a third and for some of us greedies, even a FOURTH) as the movie began.

Based upon the acclaimed comic book, Kingsman – The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

I am not going to spoil the film for you all by saying too much about the plot but with Matthew Vaughan directing and a cast that includes Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, Neve Gachev, Mark Hamill, Jack Davenport, Paulina Boneva, Sofia Boutella, Tom Prior and Samuel L. Jackson – you know you are in for a real treat. And this really was a treat of a film. Clever, witty and ever so stylish – Kingsman takes the retro feel of a 60s Bond and brings it bang up to date. 

Rated 15 and released tomorrow – Kingsman- the Secret Service really is a must see.
