A visit to Vue Shepherds Bush could banish Blue Monday gloom

THE third Monday of January has been dubbed the most miserable day of the year – but Vue Stratford and Shepherds Bush are making sure customers have no need to succumb to sadness. Vue Stratford and Shepherds Bush are aiming to banish the Blue Monday gloom by providing a bit of extra happiness and relaxation in the form of a cosy blanket, a pair of slippers and mindfulness tips for a limited number of customers on Monday 20th January. Vue is encouraging visitors to switch off from the outside world and Get Lost in great stories from the likes of The Gentlemen, Jumanji: The Next Level, and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.  This follows new research from Vue and University College London, which has revealed that a few hours in front of the big screen can optimise our brain function, social connections, productivity and creativity*. These findings have been launched in conjunction with Vue’s Get Lost campaign, featuring John Boyega, encouraging viewers to fully switch off and immerse themselves in the full big screen experience. Steve Wallace, General Manager at Vue Shepherds Bush, said: “Living in a distracting world where we are always online and on the go has meant there is no better time to switch off and watch a good film.  We are helping our customers relax and beat the Monday blues with a comforting blanket, snug slippers and top tips to manage stress. “That’s why we pride ourselves in offering the ultimate seat, screen and sound to provide cinema-goers with the best possible experience.”Blue Monday kits are available on request, free of charge to a limited number of customers of Vue Stratford and Shepherds Bush from Monday 20th January on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.Tickets are available at*UCL and Vue Entertainment (2020) reveals the cinema can have fascinating cognitive, emotional and physiological benefits
