My trips to the cinema 2018

List by Maxtaro Last updated January 01, 2018

It’s my 25th year of existence. I survived the chaos. I can travel by myself on the overground, the underground and the bus. I know how to get myself to the ICA, I thirst for celluloid more than ever before, I have a lifetime membership at the Prince Charles Cinema and the BFI Southbank is screening animation all year round. Also, the cinema at my favourite shopping centre now has reclining seats.


Let’s do this.
