December 5th, 2013.
Just one day after the rant-filled diatribe against my execrable privatised Rail Company coincided with a premiere for "the new Colin Firth movie" I was back in Leicester Square yet again! (Quick update on my Rail Company : the same swine ticket collector who has checked the same carriage on the same train at the same time for the last three days was back again for a FOURTH day. I don't understand what on earth the intention is there, and asked to pick between rank incompetence and harrassment I'm kind of torn).
Anyway, there was another premiere in London : this one a ROYAL premiere, for the Nelson Mandela biopic "Nelson Mandela : Long Walk to Freedom". Here's how it went down:
.... and then everyone waited about ten minutes....
... and then a silver bentley showed up....
Still… that was another one and the year is drawing to a close with perhaps one more to look forward to next week. But for now it's one more for the "Archive of Movie Premieres"
.... and sadly RIP Nelson Mandela. (Parliament Square, London, next day)
