LONDON, February 13, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Exploring the prime tourist spots and experiencing festivals and carnivals are very common approaches towards enjoying a London trip. The tourist spots will stand at their positions for ever and the festivals would happen every year according to the calendar. But to make their London trip memorable, visitors must try to be a part of something, which is unusual. The New Year is still very young and the festive mood is quite steady in London. People are enjoying their time by indulging in diverse activities and giving priority to entertainment.
For people who love to add the essence of entertainment in their holiday trips, this is a great time to be at London. It's the time to experience the cinema craze in London. Oscar nominations for this year have just been announced and theaters across London now extend towards movie buffs wonderful opportunity to watch the movies that are likely to bag the iconic Golden trophy at the Awards Ceremony. Cinema lovers should not the miss the opportunity of watching and judging the nominated movies before their fate get decided at Los Angeles a few days later.
Right now some of the top cinema houses in London city are screening movies like Wolf of Wall Street, American Hustle and 12 Years A Slave. Queues are getting longer and one should rush to ensure a good seat inside the hall. To make the experience of watching a movie very special, visitors may also opt for Immersive Cinema, a new concept that has turned into a trend in the last few years. A specialty of the Future Cinema and Secret Cinema, the Immersive Cinema gives audiences a scope to take part in the movie they are watching.
Screening of such movies is done at selected locations with mirroring the scenery in the movie. Very recently, screening of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was held at a hospital and to bring the effect of the venue on the movie, the organizers converted the venue into a mental institution and actors were seen portraying roles of patients and doctors. Many organizers even allow audiences to take part in various activities before the start of the movie and are also provided with dresses that characters of the movie are seen wearing. Same style was followed during the screening of Casablanca at the Roxy in Shadwell. To bring the movie effect, the venue was given the look of a Moroccan hang-out of 1940s and people were seen roaming here and there dressed up like American GIs and Nazi officers.
To be a part of this very special kind of screening, interested people need to sign up to the mailing list of the organizers. Audiences need to make sure that details of the movie shown to them are kept secret until they arrive at the venue. As the procedure goes, audiences are given instructions about time and place to turn up and they are also told what to wear and bring.
Since Central London and its prestigious West End are ornamented with lots of cinema halls, getting a scope of enjoying Immersive Cinema should not be difficult. Yet staying at the Shaftesbury Premier London Paddington would be a smart decision since the hotel is very close to the Paddington Underground Railway Terminus from where trains to all major cinema venues in London are frequently available.
