November 22nd, 2015.
It's been a little while since my last premieres ('Ronaldo' over a week ago, and 'The Hunger Games : Mockingjay part2' over a fortnight ago), and even longer since I last demonstrated a complete lack of knowledge of all things theatre-related (refer 'The 2015 Olivier Awards'). So when all planets aligned and I found out about the Evening Standard Theatre Awards at the Old Vic, I headed in on a cold Sunday evening to wallow further in my glorious ignorance.... while hoping there'd be a larger-than-usual attendance by people who are also in films.
Here's how it went down:
So... that was that. And I've got a bruised right hand suffered at the hands (or rather feet) of autograph dealer scum to take home with me, along with two very full Memory Cards and a late night photo editing.
As the year winds down, the premieres are sadly proving to be doing likewise. Currently there's only one announced ('In The Heart of the Sea') and one rumoured ('The Hateful Eight'), as well as one I don't give a crap about (that Disney sci-fi film I'm tired of having shoved in my face). But hopefully I'll get to a few more before the year is done, and keep adding to my 'Archive of Movie Premieres', now with over 300 events chronicled..
Until next time!
