Thursday at 11am, Eleanor? Can't it be a bit later? It takes me at least an hour to get to Sands... (I couldn't make it anyway, I have to work on Thursday morning.) Would love to see it, though.

It's not me who chose the time nor me who can change it ;( but admit that for once I can't complain, now my daughter is going to nursery. Am supposed to be working when I drop her off, not going to the cinema though! Still working late into the early hours to squeeze things in...
