Funny and Most Inspiring Teacher Movies
Arthouse Hotel is a unique movie themed hotel in the heart of Liverpool. And to celebrate our new offer for teachers, we thought we’d take a look at some of the best, funniest and most inspiring movies featuring teachers!
Amidst the romance, scandals and singing and dancing is Principal McGee, trying her best to keep it all under control in Grease!
At Arthouse Hotel, why not stay in our Grease themed room? This spacious room sleeps up to 6 guests and is fitted with fantastic facilities including an en suite with large whirlpool bath.
Expect to have chills multiplying when you step inside this spectacular space.
Dead Poets Society
It’s safe to say that Dead Poets Society has inspired many to follow the path to teaching. The 1989 drama saw Robin Williams blow audiences away as lovable Mr. Keating.
Some of the most memorable moments of Mr Keating’s teaching saw him jumping on desks, daring the students to think for themselves and plenty of choruses of “O Captain, my Captain’.
And though the working day may not quite live up to the romanticism of Dead Poets Society, it’s safe to say this is a movie treasured by educators and young people inspired to start their career.
Without a doubt one of the best childhood movies ever made, Miss Honey is arguably the underrated star of Matilda. Audiences are enchanted by her softly spoken words of wisdom, pretty woodland cottage and of course, her heartwarming belief in Matilda.
While we’re sure Miss Honey has inspired many to teach over the decades, we certainly hope the same can’t be said for Miss Trunchbull!
School of Rock
For music teachers, School of Rock may just be the ultimate movie. Starring comedic genius Jack Black, School of Rock sees Dewey Finn pose as a substitute teacher at a private elementary school.
This iconic teacher film is a timeless favourite and it’s easy to see why! The feel-good movie is filled with fun, with plenty of songs to keep your toes-tapping along the way.
When he wasn’t marching through the corridors with a flowing cloak and judgemental frown, he was busy making Harry miserable…or so it seemed.
From the first Harry Potter film to the last, Professor Snape went from scariest teacher to the best-loved. Fans fell in love with his dry wit and determination to protect Harry, all in the name of love for Lily Potter.
Mean Girls is a modern classic when it comes to timeless teen movies. Written by Tina Fey, the talented comedian also stepped in front of the camera as witty maths teacher Ms. Norbury.
When ‘Burn Book’ chaos unfolds, it’s fair to say that Ms. Norbury saves the day with the iconic line, “raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by Regina George”.
We hope to see you soon at Arthouse Hotel! It’ll be a summer holidays treat that you won’t forget. To enquire further or to book your stay, you can reach us on 0151 601 8801.
At Arthouse Hotel, our fabulous film themed rooms bring the magic of the movies from big screen to your luxury suite to enjoy during your one of a kind hotel experience in Liverpool.
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is one of the most marvellously magical movies of all time and it comes as no surprise that there is plenty of fun, weird and fairly frightening facts about the making of such a fantastic movie.
#11 So many people come to see the Ruby Slippers at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C, that the carpet needs to be regularly replaced due to wear and tear.
#12 Last year in 2017 the slippers were removed from display to undergo, what experts are calling “an in-depth conservation assessment and treatment” or a fancy trip to the cobblers.
#13 Funds to carry out the treatment and to create a new display were raised on Kickstarter and it’s rumoured that Leonardo Di Caprio and Steven Spielberg contributed in excess of $3 million between them.
#30 Nothing is thrown away at MGM and the proof is in the pudding as the Wicked Witch’s crystal ball made its first appearance in The Mask of Fu Manchu. A 1932 movie about the search for Genghis Khan’s tomb.
#31 Even the Good Witch Glinda’s shimmering ballgown was reused from the movie San Francisco.
The Wizard of Oz is still our favourite musical of all time and one of the most wonderful movie themed rooms at Arthouse Hotel.
So, ‘Follow the Yellow Brick Road’ and ‘Fly Over the Rainbow’ to party like a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz room where our superb accommodation offers are designed to help groups of guests enjoy one of a kind party breaks in Liverpool.

My Fair Lady is one of the most beloved musicals of all time and the inspiration behind one of the musical movie themed hotel rooms at Arthouse Hotel.
Filmed in 1964 with an all-star cast including Rex Harrison who played Higgins, a phonetics professor with a rather large ego and Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle, a working-class girl from the bustling city of London.
The story goes that Higgin’s believes in his coaching abilities so much he can tutor the cockney twang out of Eliza and therefore make her a well-spoken upstanding member of society.
The two form an unlikely relationship and eventually fall in love, despite social differences and the interference of aristocratic suitor, Freddie, played by Jeremey Brett.
The movie served as inspiration for one of our musical movie themed hotel rooms and the My Fair Lady room at Arthouse Hotel is simply Loverly.
Check out some of the lesser-known facts behind the creation of My Fair Lady the movie, its origins and some of the famous cast members below.
Award Winning Performances
My Fair Lady was released to critical acclaim winning a grand total of 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Director.
Renowned for her gracious caring attitude, Audrey Hepburn displayed slightly diva-esque behaviour when she was informed her singing voice would be dubbed. She walked offset in a huff, only to return the following day and apologise to everyone who she had offended.
Age is Only a Number
Middle-aged adults playing high school children was a thing way before 90210 and Dawson’s Creek.
source: Screener TV
Eliza Doolittle was only supposed to be 19 in My Fair Lady but Audrey Hepburn was a fantastic looking 35 years old during filming.
Hollywood isn’t wasn’t the cutthroat industry that it’s made out to be today. Cary Grant was approached to play Rex Higgins but he turned the role down knowing he wasn’t right for the it.
Instead, he strongly recommended Rex Harrison for the part and said if he wasn’t cast he wouldn’t even go and see the movie.
Another Role Rejection
Dame Julie Andrews played Eliza Doolittle on stage, just 19 at the time and at the beginning of what would become a blossoming film career.
She refused the role in the movie as she was also up for the part of Mary Poppins and didn’t want the two to conflict.
Delaying Walt Disney
Hoping to boost the career of now Dame Julie Andrews, the wonderful man Walt Disney offered to delay filming Mary Poppins until summer 1964 so she could take on the role of Eliza Doolittle as well.
On Set Interference
The dashing neckties that Higgins wore throughout filming were where crew and costume had stashed Rex Harrington’s microphone.
Occasionally the device would pick up radio conversations from passing police cars reporting crimes or updating criminal pursuits.
A Hidden Talent
Despite being a member of the Eton College choir and being known for his excellent singing voice, directors chose to dub the vocal talents of actor Jeremy Brett who played the besotted Freddie Eynsford-Hill.
His songs were sung instead by a 43-year-old Bill Shirley.
A Very Different Type Of Fair Lady
If we could imagine another in the role of Eliza Doolittle first thoughts do go to Julie Andrews. However, by the time filming came around Andrews was immersed in work with Disney so, if Audrey Hepburn had not accepted the role a third actress was in line.
Super starlet Elizabeth Taylor is said to have coveted the job although its very hard to imagine Ms Taylor playing a common working class cockney don’t you agree?
Devastating News on Set
The 60s was a decade rife with iconic moments in history, one of which was the shocking assassination of JFK.
Announcing the tragedy to cast and crew fell to Audrey Hepburn after she’d filmed the most famous song number of the My Fair Lady movie “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?”.
Setting The Perfect Scene
Thanks to the large budget given to the movie, set designers were extra creative with their work which eliminated the need to film outside.
Instead, every scene in My Fair Lady was shot on the sound stages of Hollywood studios.
When it came to naming the movie, directors struggled and at first settled on Lady Liza but because of protests from Rex Harrison, the title was changed.
The inspiration for the new title was the traditional children’s nursery rhyme “London Bridge is falling down, My Fair Lady.”
An Arresting Beauty
Audrey Hepburn is without a doubt one of the most naturally beautiful women to ever have graced our screens.
It comes as little surprise that when she entered the set in full costume for the ballroom scene, the room fell silent then cast and crew began to applaud, cheer and even shed tears at how stunning she looked.
Blowing The Budget
In the 60s, production companies were spending huge sums of money on making movies.
Only the year before My Fair Lady was made, Cleopatra at 20TH Century Fox had racked up a bill of $35 million, roughly translated to around £350 million today.
My Fair Lady came in at just $17 million, and despite being half the cost of Cleopatra, it was still the most expensive movie made by Warner Bros at the time.
Again thanks to the huge sums of money at their disposal directors hired the exceptionally skilled Cecil Beaton to design the 1500 elaborate costumes for the cast.
His work including the stunning beaded ballgown and monochrome lace Ascot dress for Eliza Doolittle’s character all of which earned him the Academy Award for Best Costume Design.
Beaton’s work was so exquisite, and expensive, that the studio hired amusement park trams to transport the clothed cast to and from set to avoid damages and dirt.
Costs Vs Profits
Despite costing Warner Bros under half of what Cleopatra cost Fox, My Fair Lady has grossed $20 million more in profits overall.
In fact, My Fair Lady even made it into the top 100 highest ranking films of all time.
We all assume that Audrey Hepburn was the picture of health, but she had a nasty habit.
Hepburn smoked around three packs of cigarettes a day, much to the displeasure of Rex Harrison who had recently given up before filming started.
Wouldn’t It Be Larvly . . . Loverly . . . Laverly?
A cockney accent isn’t the easiest to replicate, especially not for California born soprano, Marni Nixon.
She had to continuously practice the cockney singing accent when she provided the vocals for Eliza Doolittle.
A feat that earned her the title “Ghostess with the Mostest” as audiences would never see the face behind the amazing talent.
A Mouth Full of Marbles . . . or were they?
Health and safety was still a thing in the 60s so instead of popping a potential choking hazard into the mouth of Audrey Hepburn during Higgins’ eloquencey lessons, grapes were used in place of marbles.
Founded in Greek Mythology
My Fair Lady was based on a play about a mythological ancient Greek sculptor named Pygmalion who created what he considered to be the ideal women out of stone.
The story goes that once the statue was created Pygmalion fell in love with it and on the day of Aphrodite’s festival he wished for a wife to be a living likeness of the woman he’d carved. When he kissed the statue’s lips the woman came to life and married Pygmalion.
My Fair Lady’s Higgin’s is the present day equivalent of Pygmalion, fashioning his ideal women out of Eliza.
A Musical Without Singers
Today musicals are usually filled with the biggest and brightest stars in musical movie making. If you can’t sing you aren’t cast or in the case of Russell Crow in Les Miserable, you sing anyway and get mocked for it.
In the early day’s famous faces were favoured over fantastic voices and therefore musical movies were heavily dubbed. The entire cast, with the exception of Stanley Holloway who played Eliza’s father Alfred had their singing voices dubbed, why wasn’t Russell Crowe dubbed we here you ask? The answer, we just don’t know!
The Dead Penguin Play Mascot
Before My Fair Lady was a film it was a stage play with Rex Harrison still in the role of Higgins.
Apparently, Rex admired the work of the Pygmalion writer Shaw so much that he often referred to a Penguin edition of the play’s script. Whenever things didn’t seem right with the dialogue Rex would bark to stagehands;
“Where’s my Penguin”
After a while, this became a regular command and the crew and directors decided it was time to put a stop to it.
So, one day when Rex gave his usual command a stuffed Penguin was rolled out onto stage instead of his script. The entire cast and crew roared with laughter including Rex Harrison who never asked for his Penguin again.
And finally . . .
The Rain In SpainDoes NotStay Mainly In The Plain, in fact, it rains mostly in the northern hills and mountains of Spain, the plains in the south see very little rain at all.
Last week, we played host to our very own Love Island quiz at Arthouse Hotel Liverpool. The summer fun was hosted by Love Island’s Katie Salmon and Signature Living’s very own Roger Jonas.
The night saw fans of ITV2’s biggest show gather to put their Love Island knowledge to the test! And we certainly threw in some fabulous prizes along the way.
Love Island Liverpool Quiz
Roger and Katie put fans through their paces with a variety of quiz rounds. Love Island winner Cara De La Hoyde and fellow Islanders of the past Gabby, Georgia and Tyne-Lexy stayed at Signature Living’s Shankly Hotel just a few weeks ago. And during their stay, we filmed some exclusive videos for our video quiz round.
Roger Jonas and Katie Salmon
We also served up a colourful range of refreshing Love Island cocktails. Our eclectic menu featured the Do Bits Society, Megan the Snake and My Type on Paper. What more could a Love Island fan want?!
Our colourful creations went down a treat with our quiz guests. Poured to perfection by our cocktail experts, Arthouse Hotel’s Mulholland Bar is one of the best spots for cocktails in Liverpool.
We spread the summer vibe around Arthouse with plenty of decorations brightening up the bar. Even our famous gorilla sported some summer attire! Quiz attendees enjoyed our range of cocktails and indulged in delicious pizzas.
Love Island’s Katie Salmon was joined by her girl group including Instagram star and model Chloe Khan.
Of course, we couldn’t let our Love Island quiz-goers miss an episode! In between the fun, we showcased the latest antics of the villa on our big screen.
The drama saw Wes save Megan and everyone’s favourite love-to-hate Islander Adam pack his bags for home. It’s safe to say we had our very own commentary of cheers and boos as the dumping took place.
Amazing Love Island Quiz Prizes
At Signature Living, we never do things by halves. So, we went all out with amazing prizes for our quiz winners. The first prize saw our lucky winners bag a stay in our luxury Skyline Suite.
The perfect party atmosphere, the stylish spot features everything from a large pool-style bath to outdoor terrace looking out across the city.

Our Favourite Summer Movies
To get you in the spirit for a summer stay in Liverpool, we thought we’d celebrate the season with some of the best summer movies of all time.
Roman Holiday (1953)
A charming tale of summer romance, Roman Holiday had to be on our list. Starring the timeless Audrey Hepburn opposite Gregory Peck, the romantic classic saw Audrey win an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.
The Seven Year Itch (1955)
Starring the one and only Marilyn Monroe, The Seven year Itch is another of our favourites. The dazzling Hollywood classic brought audiences the iconic scene of Monroe standing on the subway grate in her famous white dress.
To Catch a Thief (1955)
A sun-kissed Hitchock classic, To Catch a Thief stars the one and only Grace Kelly opposite the iconic Cary Grant. The alluring thriller takes audiences on a journey of suspense and romance with the glamorous backdrop of the French Riviera.
Stand By Me (1986)
A coming-of-age comedy by Rob Reiner, Stand By Me brings Stephen King’s novella The Body to life. The heartwarming film is a summer classic. Following the friendship of four boys from a small town in Oregon, viewers are brought along on an unforgettable hike in search of a dead body.
The Parent Trap (1998)
Starring Lindsay Lohan (opposite Lindsay Lohan!) The Parent Trap is a family favourite when it comes to childhood summer movies. The feel-good film features everything a summer film should do, from summer camp chaos to lakeside mischief. Not forgetting, there’s a fantastic use of Beatles hit ‘Here Comes the Sun’.
It goes without saying that Grease is on our list of the best summer movies ever made! The musical comedy starts with summer dreams ripped at the scenes as the holiday romance of Danny and Sandy comes to an end. And though heading back to school is usually a bit of a downer, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John keep the fun alive alongside an all-singing and all-dancing cast.
Last but certainly not least, our list of summer movies wouldn’t be complete without Steven Spielberg’s iconic thriller, Jaws. Shot along the sandy shores of Martha’s Vineyard, the must-see summer blockbuster of 1975 became the highest-grossing film of all time until the release of Star Wars. Arguably the best bit of all, the spine tingling score compromises of just two alternating notes.

What do you have planned for Sunday’s? Laundry, cleaning, visiting the folks for a Sunday roast? At Arthouse Hotel we’ve got just the thing to make those mundane Sunday’s a little more thrilling.
FACT cinema are screening a selection of Alfred Hitchcock’s movie masterpieces and at Arthouse Hotel we have accommodation dedicated to the master of suspense and his best work in film as well as some amazing Sunday night hotel offers.
So, let the laundry pile up, leave the dishes for another day and tell the folks to go the pub for their dinner as you enjoy a thrilling night of suspense, horror and fright with FACT cinema and Arthouse Hotel.
The Genius of Alfred Hitchcock
One of the greatest film directors of all time, Alfred Hitchcock will go down in history as “The Master of Suspense”.
The man was a perfectionist when it came to making movies and he had but one desire, to
“always make the audience suffer as much as possible.”
Due to filming restrictions in Hitchcock’s time, the shock factor of gruesome gore and guts couldn’t be shown, he, therefore, had to create the same horror but without the visual aids.
Hitchcock did this by psychological suggestion, he played with the audience’s mind, building suspense so that the watcher’s imagination did the rest. As the man himself said;
“There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it”.
And this is what he specialised in, the art on anticipation.
Every Sunday from 8th July – 12th August FACT will be screening some of Hitchcock’s most popular work including Rear Window, Strangers On A Train and the terrifying Psycho as part of their Vintage Sunday specials.
In total, six of Hitchcock’s finest films will be shown at FACT and what’s more many of them are rated PG, so younger audiences can come along to appreciate a time before CGI and impressive special effects were used.
Check out the ease with which Hitchcock captivates his audiences, and also the dark humour he injects into each and every movie he made.
Quite the character and ever the showman Hitchcock even appeared in many of the movies he created, see if you can spot his brief cameos whilst watching.
Sunday Night Hotel Offers
We have the ideal Sunday night hotel offers that go hand in hand with a night at the movies watching the best of Hitchcock’s thrillers in FACT and better still our stunning hotel is right around the corner from the cinema.
Check out the pioneering camera techniques that really give the viewer the feeling of Scottie’s vertigo.
Try to follow the intricate plot with its dramatic twists and unexpected conclusions then after the movie is finished spend the night in the dizzyingly dazzling Vertigo room.
This spacious suite comes complete with an elegant ensuite bathroom, comfortable double beds and an ideal city centre location to further explore Liverpool’s most vibrant nightlife locations.
This amazing offer is just £169 per couple and is only one of the other fabulous Sunday night offers we have available at Arthouse Hotel.
Movie Night Get Together
Or instead of date night why not take a group of mates along to watch Hitchcock’s most referenced thriller movie; Psycho.
This is undoubtedly the feather in Hitchcock’s movie-making career cap as viewers watch the journey of Marion, a thief on the path to a new future with stolen cash.
Psycho was released with disclaimers in movie theatres across the world, which read;
“We won’t allow you to cheat yourself. You must see PSYCHO from the very beginning. Therefore, do not expect to be admitted into the theatre after the start of each performance of the picture. We say no one — and we mean no one — not even the manager’s brother, the President of the United States, or the Queen of England (God bless her)!”
Hitchcock believed it was key for viewers to immerse themselves in the scenes he had so painstakingly created. To make the most of their fear and intrigue he insured, from the start that his audiences were fully engaged, only then did he believe true fear could be achieved.
You’ll need your friends to reassure you no harm will come after being terrified by Hitchcock’s Psycho and the more the merrier as our super Sunday night hotel offers welcome groups of guests to stay the night at Arthouse Hotel.
