LEONARDO DiCaprio is hitting our big screens this weekend in what is tipped to be the most memorable portrayal of a City bigwig since Michael Douglas brought us Gordon Gekko.
And it looks like the City’s firms are keen to see if DiCaprio know his shorts from his securities.
Picture houses in and around the City have been getting a number of enquiries for large corporate bookings for the film; the Barbican has a handful of group bookings from financial institutions, the Greenwich picture house has an entire small screen booked out on Thursday and West India Quay Cineworld has a corporate booking for 25 people.
“We have had lots of enquiries, films like that always do well because of our location,” a spokesperson from West India Quay told The Capitalist.
And why not? It’s not very often Martin Scorsese works his magic on the financial sector.
The film, which tells the tale of real-life City swindler Jordan Belfort, has been described as both hilarious and horrifying. If you do head down in a group or otherwise, get in touch and tell us how it was - did you love or loathe it? TheCapitalist@cityam.com
