Film and Fizz at One Aldwych

One of the good things about autumn is that you can sit in and watch films without feeling guilty about not enjoying the sun outside. But rather than just go to your local cinema where you have to sit amongst the crowds, crackling pop corn and that slightly odd smell all cinemas have, make it a more decadent affair by going to One Aldwych Hotel for their Film and Fizz evenings. Forget a paper cup of Coco – Cola, here you will be sipping on a glass of Lallier Grand Réserve Champagne, and no nachos or pop corn rather a […]

Lucky for the sun worshippers, September sees a host of film premieres being aired in London, making venturing inside seem a tad less depressing. To start us off we have the London film premiere of Rush on 2nd September with Australian hunk, Chris Hemsworth, taking to the silver screen with co-stars Olivia Wilde and Natalie Dormer.
