June 4th, 2018.
From 12th April to 4th June, London's premieres have been nothing more than a giant T-Rex, free cheese toasties on a Sunday morning... and the TV Baftas. It's a drought the likes of which I don't think London's ever suffered through, and it's not exactly like we're expecting The Rains anytime soon. That's why, when the documentary "McQueen" had a premiere announced for today, I decided I'd definitely go. And when it turned out there were no barriers, fans, red carpet or dealers outside the Empire/Cineworld.... I stayed anyway.
.... and here's how something else entirely went down:
(ADVANCE NOTICE : AS AT THE TIME OF UPLOADING I DON'T KNOW WHO ANY OF THESE PEOPLE ARE!!)
So... that was that. Not the premiere London needed, or necessarily even deserved, but I'm glad I was there . Apparently the director and writer of 'McQueen' did show up at The Empire, but that's not where I ended up being. And I still get to add a new premiere to the Archive of Premieres.
And tomorrow.... is another day.
Until next time!
