23 June: Sholay
26 June: Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (Those with a Heart Will Take the Bride)
Mr.R and I should be packing, but we can’t possibly miss one particular movie. I’ve seen Sholay about 21 times so far (yes, I’ve kept track) and this will be a fantastic opportunity to watch it on the big screen again, with Mr.R, in London. How cool is that? 🙂
Tickets for Sholay are almost all gone, so hurry if you want to be there.
