A surprisingly pleasant 2012 trooping debut for me, nice to see some of the ISS squad once more. The venue was a bit confined in terms of space though. The foyer of the cinema is large enough however it’s quite cluttered with film advertising stands and the entrance is beside the top of the “up” escalators in Xscape so standing about there means that folk trying to take photos tend to block patrons trying to come up them.
Additionally, the only advertising for Episode 1 was on the wall where you hand over your ticket prior to being directed to the relevant screen, so it wasn’t until they were in and committed to seeing a film that a lot of folk realised why we were all stood about outside!
Far, far, too many photos especially on Julie’s camera to post them all up but my favourite of this bunch has to be the unintentional Sandtrooper facepalm…
