Les Mis flash mob descends on Newport cinema

UNKNOWN moviegoers enjoyed a surprise performance when members of Newport’s New Venture Players participated in a flash mob to promote the new film Les Miserables.

About 50 members of the amateur drama group stormed into the hit song on the Cineworld movie and stage show Spytty at 19:00, 19:30 and 20:00 on Wednesday night.

Moments before grinding around the lobby, buying popcorn and queuing up among customers.

Group chair Georgia Tasker-Davis said the performances were very well received and had great feedback.

The band came out in a cascade to promote the film before its opening on Friday (January 11th). Later, they booked an entire screening for an event with a black tie to make sure they were among the first to see it.

The young risk-takers will perform “Cats” at the Dolman Theater from January 23 to 26, while the new risk-takers will present “The Witches of Eastwick” at the Dolman Theater from April 3 to 6.
