Since I couldn’t check online to see how many of the 394 seats at the Glasgow Film Theatre were reserved, I thought I’d try to find out while I was there to pick up my tickets for the Evangelion 2.0 UK Premiere. Apparently over 200 seats were reserved by Friday so I guess all those people that posted on the forums about how they were going to fly up from England to see it maybe true. It was a full seating from what I could gather.
Never actually been in this theatre before although I have often passed by the place wondering what was there. Unlike the newer Cineworld, it’s a very small building with a small entrance but once you’re inside you’ll find a warmly lit hallway with some very stylish, traditional art deco interior designs.
Had initially thought about seeing both 1.0 and 2.0 back-to-back since they were doing a deal of £10 for both movies instead of £14 but sitting in the theatre for 4 hours didn’t sound very comfortable. That and I had already re-watched the Blu-ray release 1.11 again which has a “massive” 3 extra minutes to the first movie.
Anyway, there was a brief introduction for the movie by Jonathan Clements from “Schoolgirl Milky Crisis“ which ended with a reminder that there was going to be a short trailer for Evangelion 3.0 after the ending credits.
I think the direction quality has fallen off a tangent for the worst.
