It’s been 25 years since one of the best TV shows of all time first aired, and there’s a big quiz show to celebrate in Manchester next month.

Whether you can believe it or not, The Sopranos hit our screens all the way back in 1999.

That’s right – on 10 January 1999, Anthony John Soprano Sr walked into a therapy session with psychiatrist Dr Jennifer Melfi… and from that very moment, the television landscape was changed forever.

If you’re unfamiliar with the HBO drama series, or just haven’t got round to giving it a watch, then we’ll try to briefly sum it up for you without spoiling things.

The Sopranos is an American crime drama series revolving around Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), a New Jersey-based Italian-American mobster who struggles to balance his family life with his role as the leader of a criminal organisation – which he reluctantly explores during therapy sessions with psychiatrist Jennifer Melfi (Lorraine Bracco).


The multi award-winning and massively critically-acclaimed series also features Tony’s various family members, Mafia colleagues, and rivals in prominent roles too.

And now, to celebrate the 25th anniversary of what many consider to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, TV shows of all time, Cultplex – which is Manchester‘s home of cult cinema, video games, and “cool nerdy events” tucked away within the award-winning venue GRUB in the Green Quarter – will be holding a special edition of their popular cult film trivia evening ‘Quiz Show’ dedicated entirely to The Sopranos.


Through various ‘quizzical multimedia rounds’, quizmaster Jason Bailey will be testing players’ knowledge of New Jersey’s greatest family man and waste management consultant, so you’ll want to get wising up, “get some gabagool in ya”, and join in to try and win some pretty impressive prizes.

Lucky winners of the quiz can bag themselves a whole month of cinema tickets, plus loads of other Sopranos-themed goodies too.

The Sopranos Quiz Show will be happening down at Cultplex on Wednesday 6 March from 7pm, and tickets will be available for teams, rather than individuals – with a maximum of six quizzers allowed per team.
