September 12th, 2018.
Sadly, despite my best efforts at advance planning, occasionally I am double-booked on an evening when a premiere is later announced and I am already committed elsewhere. Through a combination of effortless antisocial tendencies and a near monk-like dedication to remaining single no matter how eligible I am as a guy with at least 20% of the average male head of hair…. I’m not often double-booked.
But in this case I’d bought tickets to see Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero introduce the 15th Anniversary of ‘The Room’ at the nearby Prince Charles Cinema MONTHS AGO… and then they announced a world premiere in Leicester Square that same day.
But I am nothing if not grimly/stupidly dedicated to my cause. Here’s how it went down:
So… that was that. And because it was a 5:30pm start rather than the usual 6pm, I was able to zip across to the Prince Charles Cinema and get myself into position for “The Room - With Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero”. Two entries into the Archive of Movie premieres in a single day? Well… I did that twice at Frightfest a few weeks ago, but it still feels good.
Until…. that, then!
