The Electric Palace is one of my favourite cinemas, I have been going to watch films there for as long as I can remember. The cinema used to be full, and on a number of occasions when I was growing up extra seats had to be provided to make sure everyone was catered for. Sadly the cinema fell on hard times and was in desperate need of expensive repair work. Clive Owen became patron of the cinema in 2006 and helped lunch the Electric Palace appeal to raise the much-needed £85,000 for repairs. This quote taken from the Electric Palace website shows Clive’s response to being patron. “I’m really proud to be asked to be Patron of this very special cinema,” he said. “This building is not only a beautiful and historic one, it is also a very important one. I got my film education going to all the old rep cinemas like this one.” Read the rest of this entry »
This is an off-topic post, I would like to shamelessly plug my new fansite that I have just opened for relationship between Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) from the “Twilight” series by Stephenie Meyer.

IT’S not everyday you get to watch a film at the cinema with the leading actor but that is exactly what lucky cinema goers in Harwich got a chance to do.
Shunning the glitz of Hollywood in favour of a quaint little theatre in Harwich, film star, Clive Owen came to watch his latest offering, The International, at the Electric Palace.
Fans crowded into the recently restored Edwardian cinema on Sunday evening***Mar1*** to see the A-List star introduce his new movie and give a question and answer session, where he shared his thoughts on film, theatre and his love of the Electric Palace with his audience.

Whether playing a bank-robber, a cold-blooded assassin, or the heroic Sir Walter Raleigh, Clive Owen’s British cool has always set him apart. Having starred in The Inside Man, Closer, Sin City and Children of Men, Owen is one of England’s most prominent male actors.
As I’m sure you already know, Clive’s next role puts him alongside Julia Roberts in the corporate spy thriller Duplicity, in theaters March 20. Read the rest of this entry »
He may have a number of Hollywood movies under his belt, but Clive Owen’s children are not impressed. He tells Rob Driscoll why he may have to consider more family-friendly roles in future
CLIVE Owen’s daughters are putting the pressure on him to make a movie they can actually see.
They may be pleased that their super-successful film star father gets to work with the likes of Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke but when those movies turn out to be adult sex drama Closer, gritty thriller Derailed and violent comic-strip Sin City, there’s no way he’ll let his girls, Hannah, 12, and nine-year-old Eve, anywhere near the finished product.

Clive Owen’s children are desperate for him to make a kids’ film.
The ‘International’ actor refuses to allow his kids – Hannah, 12, and nine-year-old Eve – to watch his usual movies due to their adult content, so they have started pestering him to star in a child-friendly film.
Exactly when did Clive Owen start looking so miffed? At birth? He’d win a crossness contest with Daniel Craig – or even with Mark Wahlberg. In Tom (Run Lola Run) Tykwer’s sleek espionage thriller The International, Owen plays Louis Salinger, an Interpol agent pursuing the secret arms trafficking of an international bank, whose employees he confronts as if they’ve just delivered a particularly gross insult to his mother.
Tykwer’s film uses Owen as a seeker of justice with a brow like corrugated iron, but it’s a slight snag that there’s no personality under there. His attempt to nail this corporation is a shell game, shuttling him from the mysterious heart attack of a colleague in Berlin, to a political assassination in Milan, to an elaborate and ridiculously entertaining shoot-out in New York’s Guggenheim Museum. This sequence – alone worth the price of admission – builds beautifully: the Milan gunman (Brian F O’Byrne) has been spied and followed in, meets his contact, and then spots Owen on the other side of the curving walkways. Time almost stops as the bullets fly back and forth, the camera circling and turning the event into its own semi-abstract exhibit – a study in blood. Read the rest of this entry »
