Chain cinemas, eh? Nobody really likes them, but they seem a bit like Boris Johnson or maths – if they were taken away, God only knows what would fill the gap. Well, we’ve found something, and we shout NO MORE! to the horrors of the homogenised, pasteurised and overprised (okay, overpriced) chain cinema experience. Best For Film loves independent cinemas, and we don’t care who knows it.
