The Paparazzi Corner:
The paparazzi corner is the one to see, with all the celebrity posing there for clicks. Interviews to follow after that, it is the most happening corner for the celebrities and the press .All the leading newspapers, press are present there.
Every premiere marks the a totally new fashion trend as people wear to impress by almost spending ten times the time they actually wear the dress by preplanning the dress .Celebrity are so nervous about the dress sometimes that they turn as if the dresses were not complete leading to havoc or disaster .Some set the trend to be followed by wearing the best ever worn on the day
The best thing about the London premiere is that its open to public’ anyone in the production can give you a pass, then there are passes for journalist, press, media, different production houses. Competition winners are the one who are most excited as they are treated to never to be forgotten experience, there are also people who are from relatives from crew and PR Team.The people from media are the most scruffiest one.
Before the premiere there is a presentation held inside the theatre so as to show all the important people involved in it, the cast, production house ,director, producer .They share their experience in the film and their expectations and some questions they answer from audience.
Followed by the screening of the movie
The return gifts one receives after a movie screening is the one to be cherished forever and remains a moment to be cherished on forever in life usually the merchandise of the movie to go with and a thanksgiving speech at the end on behalf of the whole team and people congratulate the cast and director and the worthy critics do comment on the movie outside where press is curious to know about the movie.
Not So Glamarous:
In reality thera are long queues before entering the theatre ,so it means waiting. There are more than thousand of people trying to enter. There are two paths to enter one for the VIPS and other for the general public. In (Vue) Leicester square there are upstairs where usually VIPS are seated and the general public are seated via different entrance. At the seat one will find water to drink and cookies to go with.
People dress to impress create a problem for themselves as one has to wait quite a long for the screening to actually take place, a good hour and half to wait for people depending on the arrival of the celebrities and the activities to be carried out by them for PR ,promotions ,interviews and other activities too.
