Celebrating Film in London
— Posted by Bud Boomer
Whether you like Hollywood blockbusters, foreign-language dramas or fascinating documentaries, London’s cinemas are bound to have exactly what you’re looking for. So just take your pick, seek out your venue and sink in to the soft seat with popcorn and drink in hand.
Taking your pick can, however, be a tough job as London’s cinemas are every bit as diverse as the city itself. The big chains will offer the latest action movies, thrillers and romantic comedies, and their technical equipment is always up to date with HD, 3D and surround sound. Whatever it takes to make your movie experience as enjoyable as possible, the main areas are usually the destinations of choice thanks to their big screens, comfortable seats and excellent service.
There are also venues that work hard to keep the experience fresh with a variety of themed nights. Secret Cinema, for instance, is an immersive experience where the audience attends in fancy dress to reflect the film being screened. Past events have included Ghostbusters and Shawshank Redemption themed events.
If you time your trip you can visit also one of the London’s many film festivals. The largest one is the BFI London Film Festival, sponsored by American Express, which screens more than 300 films from almost 50 different countries. The event kicks off in early October, attracting thousands of movie fans from around the world.
The Raindance Film Festival in September-October, on the other hand, is renowned for its independent films, and is described by Variety as one of the world’s top 50 ‘unmissable film festivals’. If you’re looking for a different film experience, you can also head to the Rooftop Festival, running from April to August each year, where you’ll discover some fantastic films whilst wearing wireless headphones on London’s rooftops.http://themovieblog.com/wp-admin/post-new.php
