Fans of the Big O can sing along to classic pop songs like Pretty Woman, Only the Lonely and Crying at the Marina Theatre tonight.

The show Roy Orbison and Friends will be performed from 7.30pm.

It features classic hits by the singer from the 1960’s right through to the late 1980s when he joined The Traveling Wilbury’s.

The show features original film footage and sees Barry Steele don the singer’s trademark dark-rimmed glasses as he performs.

Then on Sunday, the show That’ll Be The Day is back at the Marina with its new production packed with hits from the 1950’s, 1960’s and 1970’s and comedy routines.

The show features Neil Sands and a cast of West End performing music from the 1940s to the 1970s.

Then on Thursday night the Dreamboys male glamour show is returning to the Marina.

Over the past few years, the Dreamboys have built up a huge following at home and abroad and established themselves as the most famous male stripper act the UK has ever produced.

The film Pompeii (12A) is being screened on the Marina’s big screen tomorrow and Monday at 7.30pm.

It tells the story of Milo, a young slave-turned-gladiator who must fight to save Cassia, the woman he loves, from the clutches of a corrupt Roman senator before the city is destroyed by a volcanic eruption.
