Mercury Cinema, while not like the other cinemas, sometimes has a couple of sessions of current releases. As always, I’m just one (forgetful and easily overwhelmed) person and can sometimes miss things so, please let me know if I have! I think doing these once a month means I sometimes miss films that pop up unexpectedly but I don’t think I could manage doing them more frequently, just yet.
