A collection of London's 7OMM Royal Premieres

The 70mm Newsletter
Written by: Tony Quinn Date: 10.05.2019
For many, many years, the English capital London has been the home of big film premieres of new films. The royal family and film VIPs are often invited, as well as people form the cultural life, friends and colleagues of the film makers. Leicester Square and the cinemas around it rolled out the red carpet for their guests. Always a big event, and a chance to see your favourite actors. No expenses spared. Many premiere were charity events too, where the money from ticket sales went for a good cause somewhere. reader Tony Quinn kindly sent a collection of tickets and souvenir programs from these events.

Here Tony Quinn shares some of his memories from these events:

These are just the Royal premiere l attended and which have been singed by the stars. These events were all Royal Charity. Our family never advertised what we did and we always remained anonymous about our donations.

At the events we did had live orchestras playing music from the film and at the after film party and dinners. We did not allow the press in and no one was looking for publicity as they do today.

Over the years l did meet many film stars from the Burtons to Laurence Oliver and Noel Coward. Just to mention just a few who were charming. You will notice the "Camelot" program this is from the Broadway show where l meet Julie Andrews and Richard Burton. Back stage they both kindly signed the program for me.
