Billy Elliot takes box office crown
A special screening of Billy Elliot the Musical Live has topped the UK and Ireland box office, a first for an event cinema release.
Sunday's live stream from London Victoria's Palace took a record £1.9m.
It was also the widest ever release of a live event, screened at 553 locations around the UK including the former Easington Colliery Miners' Institute - one of the settings of the musical.
The live show saw 25 former and current actors - including the three original cast members - who have played Billy come together for a special finale.
