A visit to Birmingham last week to photograph the new Dolby Cinema at Odeon Luxe based in Birmingham’s Broadway Plaza opening.

The new cinema is one of only four in the UK – following Leicester Square in London, Leeds’ Thorpe Park and Manchester’s Trafford Centre.

Dolby officials say the features, available at the largest screen at the Broadway Plaza Odeon complex, provide “superior sound, picture and environment”.

Head of Dolby Cinema Exhibitor Relations for Europe, Youry Bredewold, added: “We’ve seen tremendous growth in 2019 with Dolby Cinema openings in Leeds, Manchester and now Birmingham – adding to the flagship ODEON Luxe Leicester Square which re-opened end of last year.

“Our vision for providing film fans a truly unrivalled cinematic experience gives us immense pride as more and more people are able to experience the magic of Dolby Cinema.

“We can’t wait for Birmingham film fans to be able to enjoy upcoming blockbusters like The Aeronauts and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in the stunning Dolby Cinema.”


Dolby Technology

The screen features Dolby Vision technology which improves the brightness, contrast and colours beyond existing cinema experiences.

It has a million-to-one contrast ratio, and is twice the brightness of standard screens.

The technology is powered by dual-laser projection technology.

The screen also features Dolby Atmos sound with speakers around the entire auditorium, which Dolby says creates greater depth, detail, and clarity.

 Up to 128 individual sounds can be precisely placed and moved throughout the cinema unlike traditional surround soundtracks which confine all sounds to a small set of channels.

Scarefest – Halloween at Alton Towers Manchester Photographer

Since Halloween is coming up, thought we’d share these again – photographs from covering the Scarefest event at Alton Towers.

Every year the theme park goes bonkers for Halloween and runs special events throughout October and November – from special themed mazes to street theatre, stage shows and even the chance to ride their famous rollercoaster into the night. We went along at the start of the campaign to photograph and film the action.

Seen some nice photographers make-up in my time, but this stuff is just great.


Are you ready to join us at this year’s terrifyingly fangtastic Scarefest event with spooks, frights and thrills for everyone? This unmissable event takes place on selected dates as the Resort becomes home to Halloween. Open until late so you can enjoy your favourite rides in the dark – and for the first time Wicker Man’s flames lighting up the night sky!

We love an interesting photo opportunity!

For younger visitors, there are live shows, a new addition to our famous ‘freaky four’ to meet.  Older families will find laughs and frights in our House of Monsters maze. For those in search of spine-tingling terror, you’ll need your wits about you when you enter our terrifying scare mazes….including the new Project 42.

NHS cuts take hold.

Project 42

New for this year is Project 42, a scare maze which will be located in Forbidden Valley. Whilst more details are expected to be revealed in the coming months, based on recent construction work, it’s likely that this attraction will be located on the Nemesis: Sub-Terra site, where the existing building and queue-line can be utilised.

This new addition will replace the Resort’s iconic Terror of the Towers: What Lies Within, which will not be returning, having run on and off since 2002. Terror of the Towers has seen many changes over the years, most recently to the route, which allowed for three mazes to operate within the Towers.

Always nice to have interesting subjects to photograph.

Despite being well recognised and liked, many enthusiasts have agreed that it has offered little new in recent years as well having a weaker overall narrative when compared Alton Towers’ more recent maze additions.

Also departing this year is the Freak Show scare zone, which saw a carnival of freaks occupy the path between Spinball Whizzer and X-Sector, which allowed a wider range of guests to experience a range of scares and laughs.


Returning this year are the Resort’s award winning mazes; Altonville Mine Tours: Uncover the Legend of the Skin Snatchers and Sub Species: The End Games, as well the return of last year’s new addition; The Welcoming – Be Chosen, which is due to return to the Wicker Man area.


Alton Towers Resort are promising that the mazes will be “re-scarified” for this year, although what this might mean in practice, hasn’t been confirmed. See more here

Out-of-home (OOH) advertising or outdoor advertising also known as out-of-home media or outdoor media, is advertising that reaches consumers while they are outside their homes.

Out-of-home media advertising is focused on marketing to consumers when they are “on the go” in public places, in transit, waiting, and/or in specific commercial locations (such as in a retail venue).

Currently, the United Kingdom and France are Western Europe’s first and second largest markets for OOH, respectively. Data from Outsmart (formerly the Outdoor Media Centre), the UK’s out-of-home advertising trade association, shows that digital out-of-home (DOOH) grew at a 29.7% CAGR from 2009 to 2014.

The company currently employs almost 1,900 people in Manchester and the new offices have space for up to 3,000 staff.  It is set to be completed by 2021, when it will become the firm’s largest office outside of its main headquarters in Amsterdam.  Sir Richard Leese, leader of Manchester council, attended an official groundbreaking ceremony for the building.“We are proud to have called Manchester home for the last 15 years,” he said.

Ian Brown, CEO of’s transport division, added: “We are proud to have called Manchester home for the last 15 years.  “Manchester is one of Europe’s tech capitals and developments like Enterprise City are an important part of reinforcing that position and growing the local talent base.”

St John’s Quarter Manchester
St John’s is a £1 bn development of a 6 hectare plot within central Manchester.  The site is being developed by Manchester Quays Ltd (MQL), a partnership between Manchester City Council and Allied London.

Lendlease is on board to focus on the new-build element of the 6 acre St John’s masterplan, while McLaren Construction will act as refurbishment delivery partner.

Enabling works will start in the next few weeks to prepare the way for Lendlease to start work on a landmark 52-storey tower of private flats and the Globe & Simpson work space building located next to it.

The slender residential block, designed by SimpsonHaugh & Partners, will also contain a Nadler Hotel, and restaurant.

Lendlease will also later build two further towers, the 36-storey Nickel and Dime buildings. Designed by Denton Corker Marshall, these include 610 apartments.

Once built, the St John’s neighbourhood will include 3,000 homes, 600,000 sq ft of commercial space and a mix of cultural venues.
