Hidden Figures Film and food at Showroom Sheffield

History has many largely unknown aka ‘hidden figures’ that have played their part in history and some have battled against the odds to achieve. This film is about 3 women and Africain Americian women at that and their part in John Glen’s orbit of the Earth, a which was a battle due to it being 1961 and NASA in America at the time was dominated by white males. Although based on real women, the film mixes up the facts however without adding Hollywood glamour. There is many scenes if calculations being performed. Therefore if you want captivating entertainment you many find better ways to spend 2 hours 7minutes of your life. If you want accurate facts about these women their names can be googled: Katherine Goble, Mary Jackson, Dorothy Vaughan.

I would recommend to those who are interested in space rather than those interested in the feminist/ race aspect. Also I would recommend to anyone that are big fans of Kevin Costner or Jim Parsons. Or anyone who just wants to see Jim Parson playing a different role to Sheldon in the Big Bang. I found it fairly easy viewing, but that may have been aided by my half a bottle of red before hand.

The bottle of red was part of the two mains, film for two and a bottle of wine option at the Showroom. The option is £40 to members and £35 for non members. With cinema tickets costing £8.50, mains costing £12 the wine is basically free for non members and of course deal for members is even better. I had delicious salmon on a bed of tasty squid ink risotto with a few Hilo hoop sized calamaries scattering the plate.

Next Street City Sheffield food event is in honour of Saint Patrick’s day …

From my experience of previous Chinese New Year event and carnival (see previous posts) I think the crowd will be more mellow than the crowd celebrating St Patrick’s weekend on say west street. As St Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland many celebrating my drinking a lot of Guinness. With the drink prices at Street City and the civilised crowd I think it will be less rowdy, children fit into event well and there is good choice of food as well as drink. If people are lucky they will see the amazing aerial acrobat that I have seen at previous events.
Mardi Gras Carnival Continues Saturday 25th….There is not much of a nod to the carnival theme but there are bands and saxophonist accompanying DJ and other acts.

Mardi Gras Carnival Continues Saturday 25th….

There is not much of a nod to the carnival theme but there are bands and saxophonist accompanying DJ and other acts.

Including same aerial acrobat as at Chinese New Year event. She is amazing hanging off a Hulu hoop attached by nothing more but her limbs; so strong and flexible. I would not want to attempt half of what she does above a concrete floor!

My starter was a shared platter of calamari from Italian stall; as a connasoir of calamari they were pretty good. I then had an ostrich burger with tasty onions and cheese.

There was also a hot dog stall, smokehouse van, crepe van, pizzas. The Indian street food stall was doing interesting and tasty looking wraps. Later in the evening from the waffle store I had a rocky road waffle. There was also bannofee and millionaire waffles.

The prosecco and other main bar was present as for Chinese New Year. As was the city taxi booth for free photos. There was a good atmosphere on the dance floor before ten. My prediction that is was a good place to take kids was correct as the almost 2 year old with us had a good time running round. Plus it was still free to get in.

There is the Prague beer museum which has a few exbhits to look at then you go down to the cellar where you rest 4 beers.

The Starpraman brewery takes you through the beer making process, with interactive displays including hologram of former brewery owner.


  • The hotel Adria has a beautiful restaurant in an underground cafe.


The good service, food quality and touches like amuse bouche makes it pricier than other options, but worth it. I had a fantastic steak with pate named after the composer Rossini as it is based on his favourite dish.
