July 12th, 2016.
For the third time in three days, Leicester Square hosted a premiere (Sunday : 'Finding Dory' with Ellen DeGeneres, and Yesterday : 'Jason Bourne' with Matt Damon and Alicia Vikander) and this was probably the largest of the three : big enough that I decided to try for a wristband to see the movie itself, once I learned that this was an option. (The first fifty people with a copy of that morning's Metro to arrive at a certain time would get to see the film).
Here's how it went down:
At this time, we were ushered into the cinema and I was gently encouraged not to hang around our pen any further (and didn't have to be told that a large Nikon and long-range lens is not the thing to keep out once you're in your seats).... so I took out the iPhone once I'd found my seat and my popcorn...
So... that was that. Three premieres in three days (and another one this Sunday), and my third Star Trek premiere, as I also attended "Star Trek (2009)" and "Star Trek Into Darkness" in 2013. They're all next to each other in "The Archive of Movie Premieres"
As for the movie? Until next time!
