A quick post about the new Vue cinema at Westfield shopping centre, Shepherd's Bush. I expected and got a super, pin-sharp picture that tallied with my experience of the Vue at the O2. The auditorium's also nice, comfortable and roomy.
The cinema is on the (er...) 3rd floor of Westfield, so it's a bit of a trek to the Top Of The World™, and a surprise to see just how big the lobby is once you've arrived there. I was delighted to find self-service ticket machines but less enamoured of the automated policy of only being able to purchase tickets next to seat that had already been sold (what happens if you're the first and there's no sold seat to buy yours next to?!)
Still the film (From Paris With Love) was a perfectly good experience. It's just right for that extended shopping trip that needs breaking up.
