See your favourite soap stars LIVE at the cinema

A unique LIVE stage show format being held exclusively in ODEON Cinemas, with iconic moments never seen before – on the big screen, Soap in the Cinema promises to offer soap-fans 90-minutes of inimitable and exclusive entertainment.

Soap in the Cinema will allow select audiences to get up close and personal to some of the actors behind the characters we all know and love, across all the UK soaps.

The shows will be presented by BAFTA winning producer and writer, Tony McHale, who as an actor killed Ernie Bishop in ‘Coronation Street’ and then went onto murder many characters as a writer in ‘Eastenders’.

To complete the formidable duo of hosts is actress Debbie Arnold, the only actor to appear in Corrie, EastEnders, Hollyoaks, and Emmerdale as a regular character.  She also remains the only person to appear in two soaps simultaneously when she starred as April Branning in EastEnders and Janice Bolton in Hollyoaks.

Have a little look at the preview video, below:

Soap in the Cinema commences in October 2018 and over the following 12 months there will be a total of 24 shows.  Using a pool of over 20 of our biggest soap legends – each event will see Debbie and Tony host a chat show style format, present iconic clips on the big screen, as well as pre-recorded inserts from a galaxy of soap stars.

4-5 soap legends will appear on stage at each venue, and there will be plenty of opportunity for our guests to interact through a Q&A and competitions where some great prizes can be won.

The tour of ODEON Cinemas is as follows:
Manchester on Sunday 14th October at the Great Northern.
Darlington on 28th October
Southampton on 11th November
Brighton on 25th November
Each show will be followed by a party for our VIP guests. 

After each show there will be an exclusive after-show party attended by all our celebrities plus a few special guests.  Ticket holders will walk the red carpet, have official photographs taken, some of which will be featured in Inside Soap Magazine and the Soap in The Cinema website.  Our VIP guests will be able to take selfies and will receive an exclusive goodie bag. The reception itself will include bubbly and canap√©s.  Book your VIP tickets here.

Want to be a soap star yourself? We are looking for new talent both human and canine to appear in our own soap in the cinema which will appear on screens across the country in the autumn of 2019.
