If you are a regular reader of The Establishing Shot you will know that I am a Bondophile or Bond aficionado and that like a child in a candy store I obsessively take any opportunity to delve and immerse myself into the world of Bond including the many Exhibitions and events that the great city of London has to offer.
That is noticeably apart from one exhibition that I have not had the opportunity to visit as yet - the Bond in Motion exhibition at The National Motor Museum. Bad luck, bad timing as well as a lack of energy required to plan a day trip out of town to visit the museum have all conspired against me.
However it fills me with great pleasure to report that Bond in Motion is coming to central London. More specifically Bond in Motion is coming to the London Film Museum Covent Garden adding another must do experience to the great cities already marvellous portfolio. And I for one am over the moon.
London Film Museum are the right people to do this as not only are they responsible for some of the best film related exhibits (including props from across the Bond films) I have had the pleasure of seeing as well as some of my greatest once off film related moment of recent years including an absolutely outstanding James Bond event that they held in 2010 where I got to chat and hang out with George Lazenby, Britt Ekland, Maude Adams, Sébastien Foucan as well as the great Burt Kwouk.
