The last few weeks have been quite hectic what with LFW and also finishing up the end of my semester by taking all those pesky exams. Not that I am complaining about being done with school by the start of April, of course! But when I finally had a free weekend, I jumped at the chance to do some exploring around London.
As I’ve mentioned before, the city itself is not nearly as similar to New York as I had imagined. For one thing, it’s much more spread out. And as anyone who has ever visited this town will know, calling the weather unpredictable is a laughable understatement. The morning may be clear and sunny at eleven, but by late afternoon it’s sure to rain- although whether it will be a light sprinkling or a torrential downpour is anyone’s guess.
On the bright side, the inclement weather has inspired me to try out a number of the city’s unique cinemas. While I’ve yet to find one that tops my beloved Nitehawk, I’d still say that overall the movie theaters in London are the best and most varied in the world. From members-only clubs to converted underground tube stations, there’s one to suit every mood.
Because really, this is the only way to see 50 Shades of Grey...
And if you happen to crash a private screening for Into the Woods and witness your first Meryl Streep sighting... well it's just another day in London... Although, let's be honest- I was freaking out a bit.
