Here’s what not to miss this weekend

Evening Standard Going Out Editor, Sarah Cohen shares her recommendations for what to do this weekend. 
So get your Filofax at the ready (and Time Machine if you really are stuck in the 80s) for top suggestions:

Film: Inherent Vice 

With Joaquin Phoenix starring and Paul Thomas Anderson’s  direction, you know this will be a good flick.
An film adaption of a Thomas Pynchon novel, the story is of a billionaire kidnapping  in the tail end of the 60s psychedelic era. 
It had once been thought it would be too difficult to adapt for screen, but Sarah says it’s lighthearted, well worth a watch and enjoyable wrapped “in a cloud of dope smoke”. 


Theatre: The Ruling Class 

The award winning James McAvoy  stars in this story of a schizophrenic man with a messiah complex who inherits the title of the 14th Earl of Gurney. 
He is totally unsuited to his new notoriety and the upper class traditions he is expected to adhere to, but that won’t stop him.
The play is at the Trafalgar Studios and runs until April 2.

Sport: The Superbowl

Sarah goes through a list of the best places to catch the action and that all important half-time show - be sure to see the big event somewhere this Sunday.


Vault Festival

For those looking for something a little more unusual, Sarah recommends heading to the Vault festival. Expect alt-theatre, music and pop-up restaurants galore directly underneath Waterloo Station in this exciting venue.
