EVER sat through a film and thought, ‘Well, that could have been better’? We’re not talking about incoherent plots and questionable acting, we’re referring to a more immersive cinema experience that adds scents, getting sprayed with water, smoke machines and jolting seats at its newly refurbished outpost in London’s Leicester Square to simulate what’s happening on screen.
That’s what’s on offer at Cineworld cinemas across the UK. We sat through Dwayne Johnson’s action-packed Rampage. Scenes i...

My bag is packed at the door so all I need do is pull on my gym clothes (surprisingly hard at this time of the morning) and head off for my workout.
This is day one of the 21 Early Days challenge, a life hack that’s popular on social media (and was started by an optimistic entrepreneur called Filipe Castro Matos). It invol...

FORMER Butlins redcoat
William G Stewart, who found
fame presenting the cult television
quiz show 15 To 1, died
yesterday at 84.
He hosted and produced the
Channel 4 show for 15 years from

to be matey and chatty with
contestants, his stern presenting
style made him a
favourite with viewers
