Akira @ TT Cinema…

Last Wednesday night Stuart and I went to the TT Cinema in glitzy Shoreditch to watch 1988 classic Akira.
The TT shows cult classics and independent films four nights a week in it's 52-seater vintage cinema, all tickets include a beverage - in our case a White Lady cocktail!
For those that maybe don't know, Akira is a Japanese animated cyberpunk action film directed by Katsuhiro Otomo based on Otomo's 1982 manga of the same name. It's widely regarded as one of the best films of all time.
Set in a dystopian 2019, it tells the story of Shōtarō, the leader of a biker gang whose childhood friend, Tetsuo, acquires incredible telekinetic abilities after a motorcycle accident, eventually threatening an entire military complex amid chaos and rebellion in the sprawling futuristic metropolis of Neo-Tokyo.
We loved it, of course. We'd both seen it before. But seeing it in an oldy-worldy cinema added to the fun.
The visit was thanks to Denise and Kristen - vouchers for Stuart's 50th last year.
