Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, a modern spin on the romantic tragedy
Did my heart love ‘till now? Forswear its sight. For I never saw true beauty till this night.
Baz Luhrmann helped adapt this classic Shakespearean romantic tragedy for the screen, updating the setting to a post-modern city named Verona Beach. In this version, the Capulets and the Montagues are two rival gangs. Juliet (Claire Danes) is attending a costume ball thrown by her parents. Her father Fulgencio Capulet (Paul Sorvino) has arranged her marriage to the boorish Paris (Paul Rudd) as part of a strategic investment plan. Romeo attends the masked ball and he and Juliet fall in love.
Certificate: PG-13 | Running Time: 2 hours

A trip to Millennium Point is not to missed
Last year we have had lots of amazing events take place in our landmark building. With plenty to offer, make Millennium Point your place to go to this year.
Are you a fan of films? Dirty Dancing Revellers had the time of their lives with cocktails and entertainment in our much-loved Auditorium. Following on from the success of Dirty Dancing, we reached for the sky, where guests experienced the epic musical story of Elton John in Rocketman, with 5 delicious wines that were given out for all to enjoy. For a festive treat, we showed the modern classic Christmas movie, Love Actually. Visitors sat back to watch the film, along with a few glasses of festive cheer (wine) and some movie trivia presented by the charming movie geeks The Wine Events Company.
In December, we just couldn’t stop talking about our spectacular 39ft Christmas Tree, we even put some fir-tastic facts together. It was great to see our multi-award-winning building come to life with lots of visitors enjoying the festivities.
Also at Millennium Point is the home of authentic Italian food experts Mulino’s Café, based on level 2. Here you will find the delicious pizzas, bakery items and more, why not grab a bite when visiting?
