I have to admit I haven't had the time to fully immerse myself in the Totally Thames festival this year, however I would like to give the free cinema put on in the Scoop an absolutely glowing review! I attended this year to see 'The Theory of Everything' for the first time, shocked that such a relatively new film was already being shown at a free cinema - but the rest of the line up was pretty amazing too. We arrived a couple of hours early as we'd got a coffee and were looking for somewhere to sit, however being a popular choice the Scoop seating was almost filled at this point and they had to start rejecting people from the queue with loads of time to go. They were very lenient with people bringing their own pillows and blankets, although they did also offer a hire service for these. Amazingly, we could also bring our own food and drink. Which really shows that they wanted this to be a proper community event rather than a profit grabber!! Late September, the weather was obviously pretty unpredictable and unfortunately we did get rained on towards the end, however the sun had been shining until that point.
