The most comfortable cinema experience ever?

Entertainment, Film & TV
Words & images: Joanne Clark | Subbing: Bernadette Galbraith Independent cinemas are dotted all around London, but have you ever been to one? I spoke to the cinema manager of one of the newest (and oldest) independent cinemas in the city. Growing up, going to the cinema was something my family did fairly regularly, although it wasn't until I grew older that my love for cinema really developed. Sometimes we would go to the Genesis Cinema in Stepney, and on special occasions, we would go to the premiere Odeon Cinema in Leicester Square.

Since then she has created three short films all of which have been recognised at international festivals, and her animations have received awards both in the U.K. and overseas.
