Brief Encounter – 75th Anniversary

On Wednesday I was lucky enough to be able to get to a screening of Brief Encounter at the cinema, Odeon in the Metro Centre to be exact! A film that is celebrating its 75th Anniversary this year and one that I have watched many times over the years and consider it to be one of my favourites. To see this incredible film on the big screen was a truly fantastic time.

Released in 1945 and still having so much to offer in 2020 is a remarkable achievement. Something that I don’t think happens too often, everything she goes through and talks about “in her head” we can still relate to now. Yes, we have technology and social media etc but the feelings of love and despair are something that have not really changed.

Recreating the Movie – The Dark Knight

Tonight I went back to the cinema after almost 18 incredibly long weeks and went to see The Dark Knight for the fourth time on the big screen but the very first time in IMAX. With so many more home viewings over the past 12 years since its release in 2008, it felt like the perfect film to welcome the cinema back into my life, had to go to Odeon with Cineworld pushing the opening date back to the end of this month. Although for IMAX I have to visit Odeon, it is only the third time I have seen a film in IMAX and it really is the most incredible way to watch a film.

Anyway for recreating the movie and the occasion of The Joker in his IMAX glory I purchased this snood/face mask for the film and here is my attempt of being the joker! I am certainly looking forward to using it during the winter for my runs!
