Californication - The Lost Boys @ Canary Wharf

2 x Coreys in one fine can't ask for better than that - the Frog Brothers RULE!
last night Canary Wharf became Santa Carla for a screening of  '80s classic The Lost Boys - thanks to future cinema and what an awesome event it was.  they really out did themselves with an amazing set complete with fairground, vampire cave, beach & grandpa's house (with taxidermy) but unfortunately the major downside was the lack of loos (about 9 portaloos for 3,000 people!), bars and food stalls - leading therefore to hour-long queues which meant some people didn't get to enjoy the whole experience.  luckily we got there early enough to secure a good spot for the film, got a drink before it got too manic (but no more the rest of the evening - apart from when i found a secret tequila bar behind the vamp's lair!) and i am used to a bit of "alfresco peeing" so ended up going behind a truck (not very nice for everyone i know, as it got bad later - but the organisers are fully to blame for miscalculating the needs of the high numbers of people - hopefully they've sorted some more toilet facilities before tonight's showing of Top Gun).  all in all though it really was an excellent night - we all had a great time and seeing the film again after so long was fab - we all sang along and there was lots of screaming and roaring....oh and the warm up DJ (think it was Guilty Pleasures) beforehand got everyone totally rockin' - well done guys...just get the Qs sorted next time, eh?!
queueing to get into California Wharf...first of many!
