Screenings are set to take place in various locations around Manchester as the final series of Game of Thrones begins this weekend.
Winter is here. Yes, after almost two years of waiting the final season of the epic Game of Thrones is finally upon us and Manchester is certainly the place to be to find out who will be crowned King of Westeros!
Each episode of the final series will be screened at various locations throughout the city. Fab Café on Portland Street will be screening the first episode this upcoming Monday (15th April) from 10pm – 1am. This is likely to be a very relaxed and cosy event given the streaming is completely free of charge, so get there early if possible.
If you are looking for something at more of a premium level, then you can buy a ticket at King Street Townhouse for a Game of Thrones screening followed by dinner. You will be able to watch the drama unfold from the hotel’s luxury screen room with popcorn, crisps and blankets included.
There will be six episodes in total in the final season of the series. The bad news for binge watchers is that there will only be one episode released per week but this will only build up the anticipation for each episode. Audiences are anticipating each episode to be masterpieces given the amount of money it has cost to produce the final season. According to one source, the budget for season 8 is over £10 million per episode.
Game of Thrones has become a world wide sensation since it first aired almost eight years ago. The series is of course based on the novels written by George R. R. Martin although the TV series has overtaken the novels now. Game of Thrones cosplay now exists too, there are a variety of different Game of Thrones video games too – from a variety of free to play games to the very popular Game of Thrones slot.
The first episode of season 8 is set to air on American TV on Sunday 14th April at 9pm Eastern time and 2am UK time. UK viewers can watch the whole season on Sky Atlantic and via NOWTV.
