The Birmingham Mailbox was relaunched in some style last month with Mailbox Sessions. Taking place over a weekend, the Mailbox Sessions were special, free events dedicated to showcasing the best of the Mailbox in terms of fashion and beauty, food and entertainment. Many of the sessions were presented by the lovely Lucy Kite from ITV, and all were well attended.
I was invited to quite a few of the sessions, but the one which totally had me jumping up and down was a Breakfast at Tiffany’s special at the Everyman Cinema. The session was all about having breakfast at a screening of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, complete with Bucks Fizz and pastries, enjoying the glamour and beauty that only Audrey Hepburn can bring.
The Everyman Cinema has been a really welcome addition to Brum’s Cinema scene, with comfortable over-sized sofas, great food and a lovely setting to see both current films and movie classics. Sitting in those super comfy seats I was swept away with Audrey and George Peppard to enjoy one of the most iconic films for fashion fans (and yes, I still cry at the end when she finds Cat in the rain – a totally swoonsome moment.)
I loved the Mailbox movie session, and really hope that Sunday morning classic cinema is an idea that takes off, would love to see ‘Some like it Hot’ and ‘The Philadelphia Story’ up next.
