^^ I stopped going in '09. Now I got my computer hooked up to my tv and I can stream any film I want. No more waiting in line or sitting on popcorn padded seats for me :D

^^^^IT is not the same experience. Plus I like the fact I can go, shut off, eat, make a mess and walk out into the drizzle without any other effort extended on cleaning up, cooking or making snacks and shutting off computers. Although at home you dont need to walk anywhere or pay money or get dressed. Total comfort.

I plan to build this home cinema in my new Jaziira beech house (completion, sometime after retirement or after wining the lottery; whichever comes sooner :D)

^^Can't be that expensive to build it in Africa; you just need a projector, screen, the rest you can have a carpenter do it. I'm thinking £3000 max.

with nice music, great views and peace of mind- mind you the budget for this does make it a once a month kind of thing rather than weekly- unless you are very rich. All along the riverside. Great restaurant boats, markets and galleries- I love the science museum and the national art gallery. There are also fantastic dance studio- the best of them is Pineapple Studio near Covernt Garden, that took up my sat mornings and great for stress relieve. But most of all I miss walking in the parks; with primrose hill the top of the pack- walk all the way down to regents park and you will feel like a different person.

 

There is a
£1
cinema in Leicester Square- only real Londoners go there and are members- the rest go to the £15 one
:D
.
:D

Alpha there is nothing wrong with low cost and low budget activities, of course this is difficult for those who feel the NEED to show off and try to please everyone or convince others of their worth- they tent to floss- even getting into debt to live their lifestyle which they can neither afford nor maintain in the long run. :):D, I have and always will live according to my means- be it $30 or $30 million.

 

Regents park is a big place, and I was a master at avoiding your kinds. :P

Poster, you could have gone to see England score 5 against San Marino on Friday (tickets were dirt cheap). There is the new Emirates Airlines cable car in Greenwich (I hear its great with great views of the city). Millenium Wheel is good as well as the embankment if the weather permits. The usual touristy stuff. Theatre on Shaftsbury. Portabello market.

 

You will need more than a weekend to feel it's pulse.

It may seems odd but I haven't been to a cinema since Black Hawk Down in 2002 or maybe twice a bit later when pushed; as for TV, I gave up mine back in 2004 and only watched or watch in special occasions.

I need stimulation like a great documentary (Fahrenheit in 2004 was not new facts but had to entertain auntie) or good reasons but gave up as teen on movies or games (save the odd return of Malcolm X film, Gran Turismo with siblings or friends).

Maybe the scratched only CD of our new PSX at end 97 acted as a catalyst too.

As per the serious Salafi brothers, cinemas are dens of Fitnah.

 

Now, an interesting book, lecture etc (some think I'm a geek but I'm just curious and crave important facts over fiction)...

 

That being said, rare 90s nostalgia reviewing of some old classics like Child's Play, rounds of PSX 2 or 3 Street Fighter with relatives or X Files initial episodes is the occasional weakness I'm overcoming as a past addict (but let's not tell this to Thierry)... :D

If you have a loved one, just go with her to the cinema, afterwards have some dinner and then just chill. That's what i'm going to do.
