Regent Street Cinema

“Described as ‘the birthplace of British Cinema’, it hosted the Lumiere brothers’ first demonstration of their cinematography and was also the site of the first photographic studio in Europe (Dickens himself had a portrait taken here in 1841)” {from: Now.There.This – Time Out Blog}

….the only reliable measure of time is the partial recall of films we have experienced.
