BFI London Film Festival 2020

Is anyone else truly excited that this year the London Film Festival is going to more cinemas around the UK and also premieres happening online?

I certainly am, I have been lucky enough to get to a couple of films over the years while in London during October. But being based in the north east does make this very difficult given the hotel prices around the time of the festival also going up.

I really do hope that this new format will ensure more people can actually watch the films and I guess I have to also hope that cinemas in the north east will not be missed out (we often are for things like concerts etc up here).

Two weeks to wait as the line up is being announced online on Tuesday 8th September!

“I guess I’ll see you in the movies” – An Ode to Cinema

Lockdown and the Coronavirus/Covid-19 pandemic has brought many challenges for everyone, along with so many issues. Personally for me the cinema being closed has been one of the toughest adjustments, while many people may not actually understand this and see the cinema as somewhat of a luxury and somewhere they only go every so often, maybe even every couple of months to see the latest big blockbuster films. That is not the case for myself, I go two/three times a week and sometimes even more depending on what is being released. Managing to balance this in with work and occasionally being able to have a double feature with two films straight in a row.

Why do I like going so often?

Cineworld – Boldon

C4114057-4085-4E24-A261-EE923D68AE97

A big refurbishment had started at Cineworld Boldon at the end of last year and before they closed on the 17th March due to lockdown restrictions a few of the new screens had started to open. The refurb is now finished and with the cinema opening again on 31st July it is pretty much unrecognisable compared to pre-lockdown. It really does look fantastic and on par with the Newcastle venue!
