1996, T.W.I.N.E. Tours has sponsored numerous film-related tours and
events in England. Many of our attendees have been on every one of of
trips ever since. All of our previous tours have been by invitation
only.Now, a limited number of spaces are available to Cinema Retro
readers for our most ambitious event yet: The Movie Magic Tour, which
begins in London on Friday April 23 and runs through Saturday May 1.
Here are the day-to-day highlights:
FRIDAY APRIL 23
festivities kick off in London at the Henry VIII Hotel (see image
below), conveniently located in Bayswater just blocks from beautiful
Hyde Park. Our tour alumni have stayed here before and know it's a
great location. The tour starts with an evening get-together that
includes a buffet dinner and a welcome drink at the hotel's
bar/restaurant. Mingle with old friends and meet new fellow movie
enthusiasts. (Don't forget your bathing suit- the hotel has an indoor swimming pool!)
SATURDAY APRIL 24
(included), we're off to the London Film Museum to attend Fan Fest, a major event dedicated to the spy and sci-fi movie genres. There will be appearances by over 24 actors and filmmakers including the largest line-up of James Bond alumni ever. Scheduled to appear: George Lazenby, Honor Blackman, Maud Adams, Richard Kiel, Martine Beswick, Britt Ekland, Shirley Eaton, Eunice Gayson, Caroline Munro, Madeline Smith and many others. There will be a large selection of original props from spy and sci-fi films on display. (Click here for official web site). There will also be a special dinner in honor of actor Richard Kiel.
SUNDAY APRIL 25
breakfast (included) , we're off via motorcoach for a visit to the
beautiful country village of Mapledurham, where the classic 1976 WWII
thriller The Eagle Has Landed was filmed. Cinema Retro's Dave Worrall
will personally guide everyone through the fascinating story behind
this exciting adventure film, which starred Michael Caine, Donald
Sutherland and Robert Duvall. Even if you haven't seen the film, you'll
appreciate our day in Mapledurham, especially since we'll be getting
there via a scenic two hour boat ride down the Thames - lunch on-board
included. (see photo above) The day will include a guided tour of the
historic Mapledurham manor house.
Upon returning to the hotel in the early evening, the rest of the night is free for you to explore London.
MONDAY APRIL 26
breakfast (included), we'll depart from London and explore some of the
most beautiful parts of England - beginning with a stroll around
Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare's legendary home. The real treat comes
later in the afternoon when we check into Ettington Park (see photo
above), one of the oldest and most exclusive guest mansions in England,
dating back to the 1400s. We'll spend the night here and celebrate
Robert Wise's classic 1963 film The Haunting, which was shot on the
premises (the mansion deserved co-star billing!) In the evening, you'd
better have your courage up, as we'll be screening and discussing the
film over a sumptuous candlelight dinner (included). Then we'll hear
stories of the actual hauntings which allegedly take place at the
mansion. You can lock your bedroom door - but it won't do you any good!
TUESDAY APRIL 27

where we will check into the historic Midland Hotel. We'll be touring
the National Media Museum, which is dedicated to British film heritage

the last remaining Cinerama theater in Europe where Cinema Retro will

West Was Won. It will be shown in the original Cinerama widescreen,
three-projector format, making for an unforgettable evening for any
WEDNESDAY APRIL 28

to be one of the most beautiful areas of England. We'll be stopping in
the market town of Ulverston, birthplace of Stan Laurel. We'll make a
visit to the Laurel and Hardy Museum and have time to stroll around and
perhaps have a pint in the Stan Laurel Pub which is dedicated to the
comedy legend. From here, we drive to the beautiful town of Keswick to
visit The Cars of the Stars Museum that houses classic vintage
automobiles from legendary films and TV series. Next, we'll go to the
nearby new James Bond Museum where we will see vehicles from the 007
series including the original BSA bike from Thunderball (see photo
above) . We've arranged for the museum to stay open late exclusively
for our group, and we'll enjoy a champagne buffet meal (included) with
the museum's owner and director, Peter Nelson. From here, we'll be
traveling a bit more, checking in late in the evening at a hotel en
route to our next destination.
THURSDAY APRIL 29
breakfast (included), we're in for a very special day. We travel to
Wales to visit the quaint and legendary Portmeirion, better known as
The Village in the classic TV series The Prisoner. It was here that
Patrick McGoohan tried to escape his mysterious captors - though the
sheer beauty of the place will make you wonder why! We will have an
expert on The Prisoner guide us through the village and you will have
plenty of time to lunch in one of the eateries. In late afternoon, we
travel back to the outskirts of London to check into our final hotel,
The Holiday Inn Express in the town of Slough.
FRIDAY APRIL 30
final full day starts with a walking tour led by Dave Worrall around
legendary Pinewood Studios (see photo above). The studios are closed to
the public but we have once again received permission to bring our tour
