June 13th, 2018.
For the first time in TWO MONTHS, London had a weekday Leicester Square premiere complete with carpets, barriers, security, autograph dealers, large crowds, and an improperly orchestrated single-colour wristband system based on a sequential series of numbers that's been around for over 1500 years.
And I wouldn't be anywhere else. Here's how it went down:
So... that was that. A premiere in London has certainly been a long time coming... and I'm glad they had one. And there are two more scheduled in July to hopefully look forward to and add to the Archive of Movie premieres. Rihanna ended up showing up late, but I photographed her at 'Valerian' a couple of years ago and really wanted to get home (as mentioned, my train company sucks, and indeed my train was delayed 20mins when I got there)
Until next time!
