Rocketman stars at Artrix

Brush with Elton John memorabilia at Rocketman screening.

Cinemagoers at Artrix got a glimpse of the real deal when they came along to see blockbuster biopic Rocketman on Friday .

The foyer of the Bromsgrove arts centre came alive with the songs of Elton John on the grand piano, provided by superb tribute act Forever Elton.

Members of the public were also treated to a slice of Hollywood and pop memorabilia with the opportunity to see Sir Elton John’s custom made car from the Rocketman UK premiere.

The personalised mini Hummer, complete with spangly star-shaped Elton glasses, was ridden by Sir Elton John and his husband David Furnish at the Rocketman red carpet event. The dazzling machine was made by Bridgnorth company Fairway Wheels, who had previously worked to create vehicles for Sir Elton when he appeared in the movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle in 2017.

Rocketman cinema goers at Artrix were able to hop into the blue, glittery back seat for a photo opportunity to remember, all whilst enjoying his greatest hits sung live by the talented Forever Elton singer and performer Phil Mountford.

Forever Elton, featuring all of the Rocket Man’s his greatest hits, comes to Artrix on Wednesday 25th September at 8pm and further screenings of Rocketman take place on Monday 1st July at 7.30pm. For tickets or further information visit or call the box office on 01527 577 330.
