2015 at the Cinema!

2015 has been a very good year in terms of films and I had plenty of Cinema trips to keep me going over the year. I am going to go on record here and say that I think it is actually a lot better than 2014. Not only have I had a good time with the films, I have also branched out and even been to a few cinema’s that aren’t Cineworld. As you know I have the monthly pass which obviously helps getting to the cinema a lot. This year though I attended my first film festival in London which also meant I got to go to the legendary Leicester Square Odeon as well, just an added bonus. I then also went to a local small cinema to catch The Lobster considering it did not get a very wide release from Cineworld at all, so that was another fantastic experience. Also adding Vue to the list as I picked up some amazing 3D Star Wars glasses when seeing The Force Awakens for the first time.

This time last year I was celebrating a record-breaking total. You know what I have only gone and done it again setting a new record this year, beating last year by a whole 4 films! Which I think is pretty impressive when some months were a little poor, but I got off to an amazing start seeing a whopping 12 films in January. That is always the best month in the UK for seeing films as it is all building up to the Oscars.

BFI London Film Festival 2015

Pretty good timing to have a trip down to London and that it wasn’t intentionally for the BFI London Film Festival. Yes I know it totally should have been, but that was not the case. Any way a couple of weeks ago I had a little look at the films that were going to be on while I was in the capital, I must have totally missed that The Lady in the Van had Gala screenings. 

But I am going to see a show tonight so not going to get to attend the full on Gala event, being able to see the red carpet they were setting up as I passed earlier. All is not lost though as I have got a ticket to go and see the film at 11:30am tomorrow morning. Fitting it in before heading to see Nicole Kidman in Photograph 51.
